70 to 80% of all recorded music is not on CD. I look for LPs that are not available on CD (or as mp3 downloads) and share them here.

The Waverly Consort: Spanish Music In The Age of Exploration (1981)
I found this LP new and sealed at the thrift shop. I find that unopened older LPs can sometimes be quite noisy (crackly). Presumably some process takes place in the years since it was pressed that is detrimental to the record surface. This LP sounds better than most, but not perfect. The cover photo had to be taken at an angle to avoid the glare from the shrink wrap.
This record is not on CD, though it is available on cassette from the Waverly Consort website. Associated equipment: Technics SL-7/Ortofon X1-MCP.
