I'm not a big fan of CSN, but this first US relase of their 1977 album deserves a listen IMHO:

Cathedral - Dark Star - Just A Song Before I Go - Run From Tears ... terrific sequence

The Electro Brit Pop at its best (early ‘80s)

Penthouse and Pavement epic track

For standard jazz lovers and KJ trio fans, I suggest to have a listen of this superb record:

The original German pressing seems a lot musical.

It depends a bit on which period of Weather Report you like, the early jazz-rock, Miles Davis influenced, or the later with Jaco Pastorius on bass. Highly regarded and easy to get into is Heavy Weather from 1977, I would go for this version: https://www.discogs.com/Weather-Report- ... ase/877385
Also recommended are their debut Weather Report, I Sing The Body Electric, Live In Tokyo, Black Market and Mysterious Traveller. I would generally go for the US-originals, not the remastered reissues, as these likely will have screwed up timing, which will make the music harder to access.

I already own in cd (ripped) almost all of the WR's album of the 1971-1981 period.

My favourite are Tale Spinnin' and Black Market though.

I also like the 1976 Jaco Pastorius album.

Got this recently:

https://www.discogs.com/Primal-Scream-G ... e/12646547

Frankly, the more musical vinyl ever heard.

"Free" and "Jesus" are epic tracks.

Highly recommended
