  1. There is a stereo version of this record which was not issued until 1981 at the 50th anniversary of the Royal Ballet. It's part of a 2-record HMV Greensleeve set(ESDW 713,I think the no. is).

    1. That's interesting inasmuch as a knowlegeable Balletomane mentioned there was just a 50's stereo tape.
      I was aware of only "Valse for the Gemini" as a poor-sounding fill-up on an SXLP (Checkmate/Britten Matinees).
      Maybe I could find a review of the ESDW - but don't have it - and might suspect all the tracks weren't there!

    2. You're correct - page 915: Penguin 1982 Guide.
      The others were incomplete compared to the original CLP(XLP/SXLP)/CSD/ESD/ESD LP's (have all 4 (5))..

    1. Time Capsules get hidden - LP's take up (lots of) space..
