> Lez Lee, are you sure you don't have to wind up that CD player?
And have a box of rose thorns handy....?
> Austen, as a teenager I stepped in and took my Mum to a JLT concert when my Dad found he had an evening meeting. The original JLT with Christian Garros and Pierre Michelot. We already had a few early Play Bach LPs and I think most of my liking for Bach stems from that jazzy introduction!
If it goes out of fashion, let it...we may get some cheapies on marketplace!
That Rozhdestvensky Rachmaninov was one of my earliest (on Pickwick) and bought at The Collectors' Room, Endless Street, in Salisbury in 1991 amongst a hatful that included the Kovacevich Philips Concert Classics mentioned earlier by Malx. I always stocked up there when on holiday back in UK, combining it with a Market Day visit buying freshly roasted coffee from all over the world. The proprietor at the record shop (upstairs from the bookshop-of course!) was always playing something I really liked and I envied him his job. Happy days indeed!
