This is why my vote goes to EGG.

I'd be ready to save some money for a GoFundMe so why not a lot of Egg fans ? Otherwise,  Mont Campbell has a lot of experience with DAW and if he has a minimum of faith in his project, will hopefully leave some renderings on how that album should sound like. Maybe he could patiently work out drum parts made with samples out of Clive Brooks' drums ?

This is difficult as they have many.

It's hard to go wrong with anything from Opal to We Keep On (including live albums from that time period). Embryo's Reise is also quite good. 

For a starting point Steig Aus or Rocksession would probably be preferred.

My RIO-loving self want me to vote for EFL, but Embryo is just too amazing. Embryo it is.

Rocksession is probably my favorite Embryo's album.

I also agree with Man With Hat.

I first got into Embryo with Opal, incidentally, but to list just one, I will recommend that you be a ducky and start with Rocksession, Doug. Check out "Entrances" (see Jean's post) if you get the chance. Happy listening.

Nice to see that all five choices have multiple votes (quite rare in my polls where I list at least five, methinks).
