Yes, excellent idea. Try and mention recordings that are not on HP's list. Here are a few on vinyl:
After the Ball. Joan Morris. Nonesuch H-71304
Diamonds and Rust in the Bullring. Album half Spanish and half English. Joan Baez. Gold Castle DI- 71321
Pete Kelly's Blues. Peggy Lee. Decca DL 8166 mono.
The Hits of Louie (Prima) and Keely (Smith) SM-1531. mono Capitol. Actually all of their albums on Capitol and Dot are excellent.
"Mark Twain" and other Folk favorites. Harry Belafonte. RCA LPM-1022. His first album. mono.
Pajama Game. Broadway cast. Columbia mono.
Miles of Isles. Joni Mitchell. Live album of her hits. Asylum AB202
Many of these are mono. Amazing how good they sound. Hard to find clean first pressings. Will follow up with some classical selections in a future post.

Nice! However, perhaps it should be renamed the WBF JAZZ Super Disc List. I don't see anything else on it.

When did FIM come out with 45 rpm versions of Domnerus? I have the original and ATR remastering but don't remember the 45 rpm.

My mistake. It is corrected now. It is a 33RPM and its from Proprius, not FIM. I mixed it up with the two other Proprius releases on vinyl from FIM.

I have now added a few more of my picks as well.

[Still sifting through my classical collection, will edit the list over the weekend to add them. For now this is my partial list, new stuff will be added and eventually some dropped. I realize some of my Vinyl recos are digitally recorded and some of the CDs from analog tape that may also be available on LP - I went with what 'sounds best' to me. the Shirley Horn recos are the perfect antidote to Diana Krall - ridding the world of one DK album at a time ;)]

After a long think, I have updated my original post with a lot of more listings. I do however need help with classical suggestions and of course any other suggestions. However my classical knowledge is particularly limited.

I like this thread.

Some additional recommendations:

1) Cyndee Peters Black is the color Opus 3LP 77-06
2) Test Record 2 Timbre Opus 3LP 8000
3)Lagrime Con Amore Opus 3LP 7920
4)Knud Jorgensen Jazz Trio Opus3LP 8401
5) Tomas Ornberg's Blue Five Opus 3LP 8003
6) Maytan and Friends Opus 3LP 8014
7) Gerry Mulligan meets Ben Webster MFSL LP 1-234

Many more to come...including plenty of classical.

Roysen, great choice on the Kirkelig Kulturverksted...Not well known here in the US. BUT hopefully that will change.

Does anyone have any experiance with the CD-only and Japanese market-only EMI-Toshiba Black Target and EMI-Toshiba Black Face early remasters. Some say they are the best there is and better than DCC Mastersound, Mobile Fidelity Sound Labs, Classic Records and Analogue Productions remasters on any format of the same releases.

Reference Disc List, V.1 5-3-14
(Just a very small sampling; will continue to add)

Classical:

Bach: Quodlibet, Telefunken SAWT 9457-A (Black/Gold is the pressing to get)
May I ask what you mean by Black/Gold is the pressing to get? Is the label black and gold colored?

I also wonder if you would mind indicating what format the discs on your list are? I understand if it is too much work.

Thanks again! Wonderful list! I will dig into it and start collecting what I don't already have.

Roy, it's the first pressing matrix numbers not withstanding. The label is black and the letters are gold. Much better than the later blue, etc. colored labels.

Need you ask what format? :) LP of course. I will eventually include one of tape.

I have many, many more to add so this will take some time. :)
