How many do you have?

The first part of this video is him playing "The Overture" from his original copy of The Who's Tommy in an attempt to convince you that a record played more than 100 time has not worn out.  Sorry Michael, I can't evaluate it fully from a YouTube video played on my cheap computer speakers.  Skip to 8:50 to get to the start of his list. 

 

This video goes for 2hrs.  @Citroen thanks for posting the list, I had a look for it and couldn't find it.

Although it appears Mikey's hearing dates back to 1968 I've listened to Overture on my crappy Note 9 and it sounds awesome. Nothing beats those first pressings. Heading over to Discogs to add many from the list to my want list for first pressings.

I only have about a dozen of these audiophile pressings, but a lot more other versions.

I matched 43 titles, but my collection is all digital. 

Overall quite dated choices - no surprise here.

The point of this video is to highlight reissue records that are still in print.

 

These records are all analogue. 

 

Makes sense that they are dated...

Mike obviously hasn't listened to Tony Allen - The Source. Pressed by Optimal, and a full analogue AAA production first released in 2017. Best thing Blue Note has done in a very long time SQ wise.

Hah! Quality music first, quality pressings second. There's plenty on that list to keep me interested for a few years yet. 

That said, 'Folk Singer', 'Peter Paul and Mary' and 'Time Out' are three of my all-time faves. Yes, those three are on quality vinyl... :yes: 

btw Andy, enjoying your lockdown? No such thing over here, and no-one's (yet) died of the lurgy. :ph34r:

These 7:

 

1) Ellington Masterpieces (Analogue Productions) - a birthday present

14) D. Brubeck Quartet: Time Out (Analogue Prod.) ) - this is one of my 3 favourite jazz albums (with Jazz at the Pawnshop and Koln Concert), I have it in CD, SACD and FLAC

17) Kind of Blue (Mobile Fidelity) ) - mostly because you have t have it, still coming to grips with Miles Davis (though currently enjoying Relaxin', Cookin' and Steamin')

21) LeGrand Jazz (w. M. Davis) (IMPEX) ) - because I kept seeing it advertised (in Stereophile?)

65) Van Morrison: Astral Weeks (WB) - recommended when browsing at 'Title' in Surrey Hills

72) The Band: The Band (Mo-Fi) - because I was unfamiliar with them and wanted to give them a go

73) Love: Forever Changes (Rhino) - was on a list somewhere

 

With another 9 on different vinyl issues.  

 

You gotta love a good list.

I'm surprised this was not on the list. 

I'd have it in the top 5

I've had about a dozen of the titles, not on those pressings which are mostly top dollar and hard to get here anyway.
