Essential records to own on vinyl?

For my birthday this year, I asked my parents if they could get me a record player, mainly because my audiophilic tendencies are growing and vinyl sounds way better to me. Anyway, they asked me to make a list of possible records I would want in addition to the player, and I came up with:

Dark Side of the Moon; Wish You Were Here - Pink Floyd
Rumours - Fleetwood Mac
Kind of Blue - Miles Davis
In Rainbows; OK Computer - Radiohead
anything Bob Marley or released on Trojan Records
Loveless - My Bloody Valentine
A Love Supreme - John Coltrane
Amputechture - The Mars Volta
In the Court of the Crimson King; In The Wake of Poseidon - King Crimson
Led Zeppelin IV - Led Zeppelin
Abbey Road; Sgt. Pepper's - The Beatles
Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots - The Flaming Lips

So my question for you, UG, is this: What are some records you think it's pretty much essential to own? I'm open to pretty much every musical style there is, preferably prog-rock, dub reggae, jazz or classical, but I pride myself on having a really eclectic taste. So shoot away.

Both excellent choices.

Also try some Bob Dylan.

The Wall. Hendrix Experiance's Are You Experianced?, if you can find it. Houses of the Holy, if you like it. Maybe some Wes Montgomery, something new like Coheed and Cambria's Good Apollo II, if you like prog. Rush's 21:12?

EDIT: Let's add Axis: Bold as Love, some SRV, can't name any albums tho, London Calling from The Clash, and Never mind the Bollocks from The Sex Pistols.

You might want to check out any used music stores we have one here that has tons of records for cheap and I got like 100 at the salvation army for $25 after spending a half hour going through all the ones they had and picking out good ones.

My dad threw that on last week, I've never been over to someone's house where their parents didn't own that record.

Ebay had it for like $25, as well as a bunch of EPs.

As for the other suggestions, I'm feeling Pet Sounds, Londing Calling, Boston, Bold as Love, and TEINACDP. I already have all of those sans Boston on CD though, so I might hold off on those till later.

Keep the suggestions coming, and thanks to all those that have answers.

"Enter"- Russian Circles
"Upper Nintety"- Russian Circles
"Planet of Ice"- Minus the Bear

Of course, I don't own any of these (yet), but they're essential on my list of thigns to buy.
