I have some VERY early ones, probably c. 1947 because the label copy shows the original 78 album numbers instead of the (not yet assigned) LP catalog numbers, and they're great. Must be the 3-stage process instead of the 5-stage. dl Roger and Allison Kulp wrote: > I agree I have one Harmony each from Weingartner,and Rodzinsy,and they both suck.The best Weingartners I have heard are the 1950-51 US Columbia test pressings I have. > > > Roger > > David Lennick wrote: Eric Goldberg wrote: >>>> HL 7173 Haydn Trumpet Concerto,Herbert Braeuing soloist,Mozart >>>> Bassoon Concerto,K. 191,Horst Winter,soloist,Handel Oboe Concerto >>>> No.1,Frederich Plath,soloist Carl Bamberger/Frankfurt Chamber Orchestra. >> >> GERD HEUDGER conducts the Handel Concerto >> >> Also, I have a Symphonie Fantastique (HL7220) with LeConte and the Paris >> Opera Orchestra >> and a Ravel (Daphnis No. 2, Pavanne) Debussy (La Mer) (HL7203) with the >> same artists. >> >> Eric Goldberg >> > Know something?
