What LP's do you consider a must have?

I consider most of the 300+ LP's that I've purchased since 1962 "must have" LP's, so it would be extremely difficult for me to exclude very many of them.

Where did you find this? I can not seem to find a vinyl version, at a reasonable price, not to mention a 180 gram copy?

Thanks

I got it on fleaBay...Still sealed....Ask was 50.00...Got it for 35.00 My fingers are crossed. It is on the way. Hope I got lucky and it is what the guy says it is. High feedback seller so I feel pretty good about it...There was also a used original mono listed for 750.00

Looking at Discogs it has to be the Classic re-issue.....My luck with getting good quiet Classics has been hit or miss so we will see....

Right after I saw this, I gave it a listen on YouTube, then went to Discogs, bought one, then seller said he just sold it... Must have been the same disc! He was pretty sorry about it.

I found a Sony Japanese pressing and a 1961 French mono pressing out there for a bit more, but still reasonable. What are opinions on Sony and/or French pressings of this record?

Thanks. That is what I suspected. I saw the mono for 750.00. That is way over my price tag. I will just keep an eye out....

I just found a Test Pressing for sale from AcousticSounds.com. There were a couple on E-bay, one for $350, one for $75, I purchased mine for $37.50. I would probably rather have the artwork, but glad I could pick up the sounds!
