  3. Yes - rather surprising that the LPO side possibly hasn't seen a reissue since 1962.. Sadly the early Decca Boult/LPO stereos (especially Rach 2 - even as the VICS pressing) don't sound as Dynamic!

  4. Also greatly looking forward to Shostakovich 11 by Rakhlin - should be well worth hearing!

    I don't know about the LPO recording, but the Paris Conservatoire one had a stereo version that was issued on a Decca SPA LP in the 1970,s.

      I don't have the SPA (with ECS the labels for many first-issue stereos of that era) and would suggest the sound would be inferior to this mono reissue. Been years since I played the file/s: guess the odd 'tick' got through!
