    Here’s six titles off the top of my head.

    AP/RCA Szering/Rubinstein Beethoven and Brahms
    MOFI Yes Fragile 45 rpm single step reissue
    AP/Bethlehem Nina Simone Little Girl Blue 45 rpm (jaw dropping and remember recorded in 1957)
    AP/RCA Elvis ‘57 (another oldie from 1957) 45 rpm
    AP/Contemporary Poll Winners Three (1958?)
    MOFI Dead Can Dance Into The Labyrinth
    I didn't realize there was a 45RPM version of Little Girl Blue. I love the 33...

        So the question is ... Yes Fragile 45 rpm ... is that release based off of the Steve Wilson remix? And if not, has anyone heard both and can they comment on the comparative presentation of the two?

            You own it though? If so, can you comment on it's presentation vs. a standard 'cut'.

              Definitely not the SW remix. This is all analog and SW remixes digitally. Was the SW released on vinyl? I know I have the digital version (I do like all his mixes) but Fragile original mix is good and this one-step sounds really good.

                The SW remix of Fragile (and all his Yes remixes) were indeed released on vinyl. I don’t have it though. I have the hi-res BluRay audio of his Fragile remix, and it’s phenomenal. I also have the UD1S MoFi Fragile. I can’t compare the two vinyl versions but both versions sound excellent. I’m a die hard analog guy, but I think honestly if one was being completely unbiased the hi-res SW remix sounds better in absolute terms. That said the UD1S is the best LP version I have ever heard.

                  The new reissue of Genesis’s live “Seconds Out” is absolutely jaw dropping. A MUST for Prog-era Genesis fans.

                    Of course you know that if you recommend anything I will probably buy it since I know you have good taste.

                    Not sure if you’re a Marillion fan, but the 2018 reissue of Clutching at Straws also sounds amazing!

                  Anyone get a UD1S MoFi (adopting Skylab's abbreviation) that disappointed them?

                      There's not a lot of people who are familiar with this record. It's a real sleeper flying way under the radar.

                    MCA Audiophile pressing of Steely Dan’s “Gaucho”

                    I love playing this when demo’ing my system to new visitors, brings smiles to lots of faces.

                      There's a gazillion MCA pressings of Gaucho, which one is their 'audiophile' pressing?

                    There is also a “B” in the wax, after the “A3”, not sure what it signifies.

                      I bought mine 5 - 7 years ago. Found a sealed copy, but paid at the time the most I’d paid for an LP... I think it was ~$80. Worth it to me—love the LP and the sound is the best of any of the dozen other pressings I’ve had.

                    I looked at the already indicated reissues. I didn’t see the 45 rpm Classics reissue of Reiner/Chicago of Prokofiev’s Lt Kije and Stravinsky’s Song of the Nightingale. If they were on someone’s post disregard my choice. These are stunning performances and reissue.

                      I’m not seeing APs reissue of Take Five or Getz/Gilberto both on 45rpm. Also QRPs reissue of Ellington Masterpieces either the 33 or 45. The list goes on.
