For me:

John Lee Hooker - The Healer
Steely Dan - Aja
Pink Floyd - Wish You Were Here, Dark Side of the Moon
Sammy Hagar - Standing Hampton 
Heart - Dreamboat Annie
Eric Church - Chief
Eric Clapton - Journeyman
Dire Straits - Brothers In Arms

Interesting, we have some of the same tastes apparently - But I do stray from the norm somewhat.
 
Joes' Garage - Frank Zappa
Dreamboat Annie - Heart
Tubular Bells -  Mike Oldfield
Add it up - Violent Femmes
Kill Bill Vol. 1 - Assorted
Alice Cooper - Goes to Hell
Great Film Fantasies - Erich Kunzel (Cincinnati Pops Orchestra)
O'Brother, Where are thou? - Assorted (movie soundtracks, this is a must listen) 
 
I know there's some there off the beaten path - but very good stuff there. Of course, not every track on every album, like Kill Bill has a couple shorts that are really weird, and I skip.
 
I've also been enjoying the re-mastered and re-mixed Zeppelin albums released a few years ago 
 
Good thread! I love this, I'll be checking out some of youse guys' suggestions.

Liked it musically, lot of interesting contrast to how most perform it today, just wish they could have restored more of the sound and less of the inherent hiss. Like Richter's 2nd and Horowitz's 3rd, but RCA's Kissin recordings are excellent sound ref.

Don-R.......... off topic, but the AeroSmith album is still out there somewhere. Since it has been a couple of weeks, I thought that I should get an idea of where it was sent from. Then again, it the season for late packages. Many thanks.

I sent it from here the day after. Regular post so no tracking. Not that it matters as once is hits US customs, tracking is no longer available.  
 
So much for international cooperation!  
 
I'll look for the receipt tomorrow as it's likely at the office...

I use many of those that you all have listed, but here are a few ones that I use that I didn’t see:

 

Supertramp - Crime of the Century

Lots of non-electrified instruments and big dynamic range

Pink Floyd - Echoes

Low end

Holts the Planets - Mars

One of my favorite pieces of symphony that I have heard live many times as a reference (the rest of the suite is meh)

Marvin Gaye - What’s Going On

I have a LP pressing of this that I found used, it is very old but not played much, and for some reason is one of the purest sounding pieces of vinyl that I have.
