Trying some old favourites - all original vinyl from the 70s and sounds as good as new through the 200.

Rolling Stones/Aftermath
Frank Zappa/Joe's Garage Act I
Talking Heads/Stop Making Sense
Lou Reed/Berlin
Laurie Anderson/Big Science
Led Zeppelin 1
Pink Floyd/Meddle

I may move back into the 21st century tomorrow...

Beethoven Op96 Sonata for Piano and violin, David Abel Julie Steinberg. CD
This is a lovely quality recording but there is clearly audible tape print through from an analogue tape.

@f1eng, you clearly have much experience of classical music. I have been trying to work out the what could possibly be the finest version of Mozart's Requiem (subjective, I know). I am not a great classical music fan, but do dabble occasionally. The copy of Requiem would be for a gift, I know the recipient is has a desire for the most "full on gothic" (not sure if I have described this too well) version. I think something that sounded most like the soundtrack to a horror movie might be suitable. Any ideas??

Back on the intended subject of the thread... I have almost accidentally started listening to some "Stranglers" tracks. Surprisingly good!

Sorry, the classical music world is hundreds of times bigger and more varied than the pop music world, the inevitable consequence of the longer history, and Mozart is not one of my specialities.
I only have one recording of it. Mine is the Christopher Hogwood/ Academy of Ancient Music offering using original instruments, which I like but not everybody's cup of tea!

@f1eng - Point taken! Sorry for putting you on the spot with this one, I did think after my post that that a PM would have been more appropriate. It has peaked my interest though, perhaps searching through the very many versions out there could be good fun, and a challenge.
