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.

Last Waltz was the first film I watched twice in a theatre. Or pretty much otherwise. Never really wanted to watch many films more than once.
