  I did not "forget" "The Rubinstein Story" (LM/LSC-2265). The subject was single LPs packaged in boxes. LM/LSC-2265 was not packaged in a box. It is a gatefold album. Therefore I didn't think it qualified for inclusion. Nor was it part of the Soria series. Nor was anything from Giselle, which was not packaged in a box.

  There were numerous RCA Victor single LPs packaged in gatefold containers. 

  I presume the Horowitz Soria series album to which you refer is LD-7021 (two records of mono material). I bought mine in Chicago when it was issued.

You forgot The Artur Rubenstein Story,or whatever they called it.Not to mention 
the Giselle.Those Sorias are in a class by themselves.I have all of them except 
the La Voix Humaine set. I also have this remarkable Soria-type box set,from 
1960 on Victor Red Seal of Japan,that collects many of Vladimir Horowitz's mono 
recordings for RCA.Deluxe Japanese-only sets are a completely different subject 
entirely. Leinsdorf's entire output for RCA is best forgotten.The Wikipedia 
entry on Dynagroove gives a  pretty good overview why.No other artist's 
reputation was hurt more by this dreadful practice.I don't think it's his 
style,I find a lot to like about Leinsdorf's records for Capitol and 
Westminster. Roger> Date: Fri, 26 Apr 2013 18:23:04 -0400> From:
