I only recently picked up this review and it appears it is my comment about 'electronic stereo' in one of the other reviews that you dispute. I have listened to this again using two different pairs of headphones and my opinion remains unchanged- there is definite separation of certain brass and percussion, but it is not consistent. there is a very interesting letter in the December 1992 Gramophone comparing this recording with the original Pye/Nixa, with reference to an earlier article in 1983. The 1992 letter can be found if you do an internet search quoting the recording, label and CD number. I can't give you the web link because that apparently breaches Amazon rules (why, I don't know). It gives a good background to the recording, and comes out in favour, as do most other references to it, of it being electronic stereo. What is certain is that it is not real stereo, and the inconsistency I mention is apparently a feature of 'fake stereo'.
You'll also see the Amazon product guide sugggests it is a stereo recording, which it isn't- not in the genuine sense.
Other than the difference of opinion in this particular matter, it seems we are agreed on the greatness of th performance.
It seems there's an excellent new remastering of this performance on the Heritage label, advertised elsewhere on Amazon. Whether it's worth shelling out for it is a matter of taste, but for the moment I'm happy with this one.
