Xenakis - Rebonds A & B (can't find link)

Farberman: Jazz Drum Concerto/Shchedrin: Carmen

Evelyn Glennie - Ney Rosauro - Marimba Concerto (once again no link)

Plenty more Xenakis too which I'm not that familiar with.

Aenima or Lateralus by Tool. Tool's music, for me, is characterised by Danny Carey's drumming.
(You might also want to check out Incitare by Volto! if Danny's drumming does it for you...)
Breaking the Ethers by Tuatara.
Hammond vs. Drums by Bootcut. You could argue this is Hammond-based, rather than percussion-based, but still, there are only two instruments, and drums are one of these.

Oh yes, definitely! The percussion on Lark's Tongues is sublime! :)

I think BJ Wilson's percussion is under-rated, and you've got to love anyone who appreciates the good use of a cowbell...
Home contains my wee girl's favourite Procol Harum track ("Whisky Train") which is a good example of the above. :)

Arragh, I have been deleted by amazon and it was their own bl00dy blue link that was the problem. If it is so offensive, why sell it? Grrrr.

Great Grateful dead percussion track on one of the lbums I have which I have mentioned before in dispatches, If I ever remember whch album and which track, I'll ket you know.

I cand put up an entire albums worth though : Japanese Taiko, although of course as I'm incapable of listening to anything else this must actually be guitar based rock in reality.
