To the replies engendered by Ben Roth's query about Delius, I do not find
that any of the EMI transfers of the Delius Society sets represent the best
that can be had from those recordings. *Pace* Griffith, the high frequency
resolution is always compromised, which a comparison with the Columbia sets
and the "supplemental" volume from EMI will clearly reveal. Except for the
first pressing, the American Columbias are inferior to their English
Columbia counterparts. Worth noting as a caution.
