The Beau Brummels:  San Fran Sessions (you have to be a pretty hardcore Beau Brummels fan to want to listen to three discs of outtakes.  And I am that fan)

John Luther Adams:  Clouds of Forgetting, Clouds of Unknowing (Falletta/Apollo Chamber Orchestra)

Revueltas:  La Coronela/Itinerarios/Colorines (Ben-Dor/English Chamber Orchestra/Santa Barbara Symphony)

Tommy Dorsey/Frank Sinatra:  The Song Is You (Disc 5)

Schubert:  Piano Sonatas Nos. 12 & 20 (Badura-Skoda) (period instruments versions) (I personally tend to think this set has been criminally undervalued)

Of course, Keith Emerson's version of Mussorgsky:  Pictures at an Exhibition is definitive.

But his "Nut Rocker" is even better.
