Well, we start out with any/all recordings (78's included if any) by:

Mantovani and his Orchestra (post-c.1935 or so)
101 Strings
The Norman Luboff Choir
The Longines Symphonette
Any Readers' Digest sets which feature semi-anonymous remakes
   as opposed to reissues of original recordings
Virtually all LP albums which sold new for 99 cents or less(?!)
Any recordings of high-school bands or vocal units (with the
   exception of your alma mater or works featuring your offspring)
Any anthologies sold or promoted by "easy listening" FM stations
Any LP's with a well-known name on their cover but which turn out
   to have one or two cuts by him/her/it and the rest by unknowns
Any LP's whose titles end in "...For Lovers," "...For Dining" or
   in any other way suggest musical contents of innocuosity...
Any LP's which are sold primarily as souvenirs of a travel
