Beethoven’s 7th. The recording I’ve mentioned elsewhere Carlos Kleiber / Vienna Philharmonic.
One of the greatest recordings of all time. I went through a few vinyl copies back in the day. CD not quite as good sound, but this is on the top of my all-time favorite list.
I never had the chance to hear it on vinyl. But, we're in complete agreement. My favorite recording of my favorite piece of music.
Right now, however:
The Band, The Band
I went on a Band kick recently after reading both Robbie Robertson's and Levon Helm's autobiographies in succession. I listened again to their full catalog in chronological order.
Even though they weren't particularly well received at the time, I still love Stage Fright and Cahoots. And especially Northern Lights, Southern Cross which had classics like Ophelia, Acadian Driftwood and It Makes No Difference -- all prominently featured in The Last Waltz.
