I have this also on the HiQ LP version and, in comparison to the CD, it has the edge and the pressing is immaculate. It has been through a few editions over the years and I await the XRCD version to see if there is anything to be gained, i'll post a review in due course.
Nonetheless, even in its original format there is nothing to be criticised, it is indeed a matchless performance.
While the Rachmaninov will never go out of print, I must say despite being a well engineered analogue recording for vinyl (Bishop/Parker) this Planets has never really impressed me. But this is purely a personal view. It is a solid performance, but ultimately lacks the sheer sonic punch of say Boult/EMI or Metha/DECCA(Los Angeles Phil), the nimble rhythmic touch ("Mercury" unequalled) of the famous Sargent/BBC Symphony/EMI recording where the "Mars" has never been equalled in my view, or sheer musical beauty of Karajan's later digital recording with the Berlin Phil on DG.
