Its on my list - Miles Davis - Sketches of Spain
It's not to everyone's taste, and jazz purist probably hate it, but to me, it's right up there.
I'll be seeking out a perfect copy though, as mine has a few too many pops for my liking.
And as I thought, "Water Babies" was off the turntable very soon after my wife returned to the room, where in contrast, she quite liked "Sketches of Spain", especially the opening "Concierto de Aranjuez".

Eric Burdon and The Animals
Hey Andy, I love The Animals, and in particular Eric Burdon's vocals.
If you get a chance, though not available on vinyl ( I'm pretty sure anyway), try his last two solo albums Soul Of A Man (2006) and 'Til Your River Runs Dry (2013). I love them both, and he might be the wrong side of 70 these days but he can still belt out a song and get a crack group of musicians together.

You can certainly get 'Til The River Runs Dry on vinyl and rather good it is too.
Miles Davies - Sketches of Spain
180g Music on Vinyl Mono pressing from my local used record except it was brand new £15
Bargain, enjoy Miles
And Soul of a Man very good, need to get river runs dry on vinyl but the CD is good
Thanks for letting me know. However I have both CDs which will do for me, I don't buy new vinyl these days.
