Whats on your turntable tonight?

For me its the first or very early LP's of:
Allman Brothers - "Allman Joys" "Idyllwild South"
Santana - "Santana" 200 g reissue
Emerson Lake and Palmer - "Emerson Lake and Palmer"
Beethoven - "Piano Concerto No. 4 in G Major" Rudolph Serkin/Ozawa/BSO

Rita MacNeil-Flying On Your Own Side A

Liona Boyd-Spanish Fantasy Side 1 SQ*

Klymaxx-The Maxx Is Back Side 1

Toni Tennille-All Of Me Side 1 SQ Audiophile

Uriah Heep-The Magician's Birthday Side 2 SQ*

Wilton Felder-We All Have A Star Side 1 SQ Audiophile

Haydn-Concerto No,2(Geringas/Eurodisc 200745-366) Side 1 SQ Audiophile

Merle Haggard & Leona Williams-Heart To Heart Side 1 SQ*

With 3 Audiophile recordings and 3 SQ* near misses crushes my average. As I close in on playing my complete vinyl collection having 25% Audiophile recordings appears optimistic. Toni Tennille takes the SQ crown! Her vocals are outstanding on this recording.
