Where's your R2R? ;)
Between my LP, CD, SACD, and DVD-A physical media collections I already own sufficient dead or dying formats!

What albums are recommended that are considered "well-recorded?" Any which remain AAA (analog tracked/mixed/mastered) and are available in vinyl or preferably, reel-to-reel? Thanks!
I dont keep up on what form the records are in, such as the medium they are available on, this is more of marketing thing by the record company. But I can tell you that following the engineer is usually the best way to get great sounding records. Al Schmidt (as recording engineer either tracking or mixing) has done very few bad sounding records. Same with Chuck Ainlay, George Massenburg, Ed Cherney, Mark Waldrep, David Cheske, Joe Chicarelli, Tom Elmhirst, these are the leading engineer/producers in the business. Buy a record they were involved in and its usually well recorded. There are some engineers such Joe Barresi who does a narrower group of bands, such as TOOL, Queens, etc- he does the best sounding guitars EVER and makes the best sounding rock records Ive ever heard.

So don't follow the artist, follow the engineer.
