    The Anda has landed! :D

    However he had a bit of a storage issue whilst in hibernation - the poly sleeve was stuck to the laminate which peeled off a little when I removed it. Also needs re-gluing. The good news is that the vinyl looks barely touched ...:cool:

    Judging from the catalog number, this LP might have been produced forty years ago ...

  5. I have the SACD, it's an amazing recording. It's hard to believe it's more than 60 years old.

    Not sure if there are other people who have done the same. I have always kept the poly sleeve on, as it keeps dust off the laminate. While there are some who argue the poly sleeve may warp the record over time, I have never observed its occurrence ...

    I'm pretty religious about keeping lps in their poly sleeves and have never worried about warping. I use 450g sleeves, not keen on the really heavy duty ones ...

    Philips vinyl rarely disappoints but that is one grim looking cover ...:eek:

    I often think that while going through these Living Presence and Living Stereo boxes. I'm glad they took such good care of the tapes. :)

    First listen to CD 8 from "The Choir Of St. John's College Cambridge - The Complete Argo Recordings" directed by George Guest on Decca.

    Haydn - Theresa Mass with The Academy Of St. Martin-In-The-Fields

    Kubelik was an excellent conductor but is a bit underrated IMO ...

    Don't know which big box @crispi was referring to as there are two big Kubelik boxes out there IIRC ...

    IMO, below is the best of Anda. I bought the box almost a decade ago ...

    So it is not the Symphony Edition since the CD box has 23 CD's ...

    @crispi said 14 LPs, so I guess it's an older DG box, from the pre-CD era.

    I don't recall having seen large LP boxes that have works by different composers for a single conductor back in the day ... :confused:

    At least not in the US.

    Could be a box with Kubelík's Mahler recordings only, no other composers. Anyway, only @crispi can answer that :)
