    2016 Sterophile Records to Die For list came out, and I can always use a good recommendation, even though my list of records to purchase is already a mile long. Weather Report, Talk Talk, Bud Powell and Bad Brains (!) and much more. As someone newer to purchasing vinyl, I need all the help I can get catching up on good recordings. Please tar and feather me if this list stinks.

    Direct to disc stuff. Some odd sounding stuff, but fantastic recordings of it.

    Everyone should have at least one Weather Report album in their collection.

    Everyone should have every Weather Report album, provided it's got Jaco. :p

    @JoshMorr that list has been going on along time, and they've picked the best in earlier years. For audiophile records,this is the initial reference list

    http://www.theabsolutesound.com/articles/the-hp-super-lp-list/

    I vote for Heavy Weather, which is a gateway drug to fusion!

    Other possibilities

    Bob Dylan - The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan
    John Coltrane - A Love Supreme
    Miles Davis - Kind of Blue, Miles Ahead
    The Beatles - Mono Box set, or the 1980 Blue Box set in Stereo (these are EMI/Uk pressings)
    Steely Dan - Aja
    Dire Straits - Love Over Gold, Brothers in Arms
