There has to be a tremendous amount of work put into remastering this, plating the stampers and then doing a meticulous job of pressing a great recording, yet only people get ot enjoy this? Do they not think that if they pressed 5, copies there would not be enough worldwide interest to sell them all at a reduced price, but still retain a good profit margin?

So, this is where you announce a drawing to give away your evaluation copy of the LP. Right, Michael? When I saw the announcement of the release of these records several months back I said very interesting.
Might be worth hearing, but owning? And to think Mike has reviewed it as a 9 sonically doesn't make me want it any more. My shelf space has run out even for the good ones no less the "interesting" ones such as this. And, I would never want to hear my wife say one more time, Another Record??!!

Michael - I am curious, do you know why the Lyrec machine has two preview heads? I have never heard of this before. Fremer - would you kindly address the issue of de-horning of metal parts stampers in a little more detail?
I was worried about my sanity, and this is reassuring. I played them and for the most part, the sounded perfect, but there were pops and ticks and yes, I cleaned all the LPs beforehand. The next morning, I played the LPs again to confirm my assessment before I returned them and they sounded fine! Please keep up the good work! I was crazy enough to buy this.

I do like acoustic instruments to sound on record as they do live. Guilty as charged and not a mistake IMO. Try it. Beethoven Leonid Kogan Paris Conservatoire Orchestra Conducted By Constantin Silvestri Beethoven Vio had a 20th row center subscription to AFH for more than Beethoven Leonid Kogan Paris Conservatoire Orchestra Conducted By Constantin Silvestri Beethoven Vio decade so sitting up there wasn't on my schedule but I gave up the seats last year after two disappointing years of Alan Gilbert's chosen repertoire.
I actually walked out on one concert. Too much religious and vocal music for my tastes. Some very difficult modern stuff that didn't at all appeal either. I don't require the usual warhorses but the stuff he chose just didn't appeal and for what it cost I couldn't justify sitting through unpleasantness.

Rock bands, folk bands, jazz combos, jazz pianists, even chamber music. Everthing has a microphone and amplifier and a loudspeaker in the chain. The only thing missing is a length of tape.
Take into account the mediocure quality of most live equipment, especially loudspeakers, and you have a recipe for sound that isn't as good as what can be heard in a lot of living rooms.
Thus I do not believe that live music is necessarily better sounding than pre-recorded music. Get rid of the electronics and live music will sound a lot better, if you can hear it at all past the chatter box in front of you.
