RE: heard a needle drop of "Houses of the Holy" this weekend...

Was the needle drop on you tube?

If you have an android box feeding your hi-fi try some of Fremers needle drops on analog planet.
Beach Boys "In My Room" is excellent as is David Bowie's "After All". Notice the easier identification of emotion in Bowie's voice, something you initially don't notice very much on the "CD" version of the track. If you then return to the CD and listen really hard you can just about detect such subtleties, because the LP version highlighted it for you. The way Bowie sings it is not a whisper or a murmur but has elements of both. The LP demonstrates this easily but the CD does not.

This is quite apart from the sense of a living breathing performer being conveyed by the recording.
Vinyl does indeed have a purpose ;)
