    I only bought one used classical record sight-unseen from a trusted Japanese seller on eBay.

    All of my other used classical vinyl was visually inspected by me in a store before purchasing.

    I waited one month for this LP to arrive from Russia—it was worth it! Beautiful, bold playing with sound to match. Nearly silent surfaces, too.

    I'm getting close to that! The main problem is new or audiophile remastered LPs are getting very expensive. For a while, when my renewed interest in vinyl was at its peak, I was buying LPs just to have the music in that format. Now, I plan to buy them mainly if they are the only version of the music that I want, such as the Bach shown above.

    There are too many books out there. I have the Eton Choirbook but did not know there are some Baldwin Partbooks that have yet to be explored ... :o

    That was an early '60s recording/release. I have a 2-LP reissue from the mid-'70s (shown below) that was made in Italy. Very fine performance from these two masters.

    Spinning my favorite Nielsen 4th and 5th performances. Curious what performances other folks call their favorites.
