I would not play Classical to someone who doesn't like the genre, Jazz to somenone who's into Electronica, or Electronica because I don't have any.
I might play this:

It's not supposed to be 'your favourite....' but technically good. When I visited Max Townshend in Malta, he sat us down to demonstrate his speakers and put on the exact same LP that I'd always used to show off speakers; Andreas Vollenweider 'Beyond the gardens....'
I also like 'Yellow moon' by the Neville Bros which was recorded on valve equipment in Daniel Lanois' house in New Orleans.

Exile on Main St - The Rolling Stones. It features straight-ahead rock, boogie, blues, country, gospel... Just a tremendous achievement

This on the OG vinyl, although the remastered box set is pretty good, this honestly just pips it.
Produced to within an inch of of it's life and then dialled back just enough to add the smallest amount of grit. So spacious, so separated and yet so intimate and coherant. Sounds incredible through my LS3/5a v2's.

Try Attila Bozay 'Improvisations for Zither', described as the zither equivalent of Hendrix's Star Spangled Banner and a great system demo track.
