    I currently have the 12 Inch mix of "We Close Our Eyes" by Go West on the family record player. I alternate between that and the 12 Inch mix of "Out Of Control" by Evelyn "Champagne" King.

    I wish I had The Wall on vinyl. The only Pink Floyd I have on vinyl is Wish You Were Here, Dark Side Of The Moon, Animals, and The Final Cut.

    Van Morrison's "Common One." It's weird that there's 2 15-minute long songs on the same record.

    Alice Cooper: Lace and Whiskey
    But usually Led Zeppelin Live. Its got a great live version of Stairway To Heaven on it... I've got that song in 4 different versions and I love them all, 2 of which came with the Mother Ship. 1 on the DVD and 1 on one of the CDs.
    UFC is great

    What I love best about vinyl is the cool crap that came with the records. I got a lot of mine from my dad, and he saved all of the stuff that came with them. So his Sgt. Pepper still had the little cut outs, badge, and stand up Sgt. Pepper thing that came with it. And his Dark Side of The Moon still had the poster that came with the album. I have it on the wall. It's kind of cool, here's a picture.


    You can't really tell, but in very small print at the bottom it says "Pink Floyd-Dark Side Of The Moon"

    Anyway, right now I have Jethro Tull's "Aqualung" on the turntable.

    I also got Sgt. Pepper's from my dad, and he saved the cut-outs, too. I really wanted to play with the mustache when I was little, but he wouldn't let me (thank god).

    Looking at that mustache, and the thickness of that paper, I'm not sure it would work like those plastic ones do. I think you would tear it before you got it in your nose.

    Frank Zappa - Freak Out (mono)
    __________

    I love that aspect of records too. My folks gave me their records, like Jefferson Airplane's Volunteers comes with a fake newspaper and the Rolling Stones' Statnic Majesties... with the hologram picture on the cover.

    Alot of the Who's vinyl is great for that kind of stuff. Tommy and Quadrophenia both have illustrated lyric books, the Kids Are Alright soundtrack has a photo booklet and The Story of the Who best of has a booklet stapled into the spine of the gatefold. Live at Leeds comes with various pictures and reproductions of various Who documents like their EMI rejection letter, the Maximum R&B flyer they used to use and their contract for Woodstock. That stuff goes up on e-bay all the time by people who think they've got the real deal. It's all just reproductions.

    Yes did a big production for their Yessongs 3 album live set. The cover folds out to show four paintings (3 within the trifold and a fourth on the back cover.) There's also a booklet of tour photos.

    Dark Side of the Moon has a second poster that also comes with it with pictures of the band. Yessongs and Dark Side of the Moon were both out in 1973. It's probably no coincidence that there was a cardboard and paper shortage that year.

    One of my favourite inserts is the picture book that came with Magical Mystery Tour. I bought the c.d. a few years ago, and I was so dissapointed it wasn't included. I've also lost a lot of inserts over the years. I don't have any of the mentioned Pink Floyd posters or the Live at Leeds stuff. I only have the the London Symphony Orchestra (I think?) recording of Tommy, but I do still have the lyric book that came with that. I also still have the George Harrison poster that came with All Things Must Pass.

    I'm not sure what you would call it, but I love the little extra things records had going, like the Their Satanic Majesties Request cover that Funky Guy mentioned, or the spinny thing on Led Zeppelin III. I used to absolutely love the cover of the Rolling Stones' Some Girls, where you could give the band members different wigs.

    Anyways, I am currently listening to The Allman Brothers at Fillmore East.
