Okay, I must have missed something..what Milsteins are on Silvertone? Unless
they're the earlier Columbia-pressed Silvertone label from the early 40s which
reissued some Columbia (and possibly ARC) discs. Incidentally, Nathan Milstein
may not have been under contract to anyone in 1946. His Columbias stop in 1942,
I believe, and he doesn't reappear on Victor till about 1949 or 1950.

I have heard they are from around 1946.Is this correct ?Milstein had already recorded for Columbia,so these were of dubious legality.I am assuming the "Chicago Philharmonic" is the CSO,in a similar situation to that of "The Stadium Symphony Orchestra"at Everest,perhaps our friend Don Tait can enlighten us further ?The Leinsdorfs are not listed in most Leinsdorf discographies,either.
