why would those Philips LPs of David Oistrakh and Lev Oborin go for so much? Was that a freak eBay 
sale? That material was reissued as a nicely-packaged good-sounding CD set. The original sound 
quality wasn't knock your socks off, although it was typical Philips high quality. The performances 
remain highly rated by some critics. But, if a CD set is available, why are the original LPs worth 
thousands of dollars? Could this have been a Philips completist buyer who got in a bidding war?
