    Default in need of some good vinyl recommendations

    Ok. I want to buy a few select rock albums pretty soon.. can you all recommend some "must haves" on vinyl?

    I like classic rock from the 70's, and 80's. I also love 80's synth pop too.

    I just bought Cat Stevens greatest hits on vinyl... lovely sounding album.

    Here is a small list of what i do have already from way back when.. they need cleaning of course.

    Eric Clapton - Slowhand
    Fleetwood Mac - Mirage
    Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble - Texas Flood
    Triumph - Never Surrender
    Naked Eyes - self titled
    Quarter Flash - self titled
    YES - 90125
    Doobie Brothers - Best of
    Carole King - Tapestry
    Elton John - A single man - unopened
    Tony Bennett - get happy with the London philharmoic orchestra
    Carly Simon - No Secrets
    Jim Croche - greatest hits
    the Knack - get the Knack
    Judas Priest - Screaming for Vengeance ;)
    Pat Benatar - Precious Time
    Steve Miller band - greatest hits 74-78
    Journey - Escape and Frontiers
    Led Zeppelin - In through the Out Door.

    anyhoo, that gives you an idea of what i have liked in the past.. and still continue to enjoy today..

    so please pass along any vinyl recommendations you think i should have in my library.. now that i'm dabbeling in vinyl again.

    The first three Santana albums RULE on SDA's (Abraxas especially).

    Also check out Traffic (any you can find), The Moody Blues, and Steely Dan.

    I just got a player myself, so not a lot of recommendations or experience...take it with a grain. This is about all I have found so far, but I like them:

    Carlos Santana & Buddy Miles Live - 1972 Columbia Quadraphonic
    Billy Joel The Stranger - 1977 Columbia

    Come on, DSOTM and Zeppelin 4 are must haves in every format

    Edit: For a nobody band that isn't too hard to find on vinyl (my dad got it off ebay for mom) The band is King of Hearts and the album is Close but no Guitar. It has been awhile since I heard it but I remember it being good. Oh, get Queen News of the World
