Hi, Unk,

The Hayds Soc set also came on Vox, then Vox Box as I recall.  Check early Schwanns.

Subject: [ARSCLIST] The Mystery of Interloping Vox Discs

I have here a set which my late friend Jud Yalkut was very proud to own and never expected to find myself: Haydn Society HSL-100, Schoenberg's "Gurre Lieder" conducted by René Leibowitz with soloists, chorus and the New Symphony Society of Paris. Engineered by André Charlin, copyright 1952. Or is it? The discs and booklet notes are from Vox, VBX 204, released in 1962.
One might assume that the previous owner swapped out their Haydn Society discs and book for those of the Vox reissue, but is it possible it was sold this way? Haydn Society having some album sets left over which Vox cannabalized?

Also I have a set, "Ovation," celebrating the 75th Anniversary of the Minnesota Orchestra in 1978 and produced by a chap named Dennis Rooney.
Inside is a disc on the Minnesota Orchestra label presenting a survey of the orchestra's recorded output ranging from 1925 to 1961, and then a Vox disc of Skrowaczeski conducting Stravinsky and Prokofiev which absolutely belongs to this set -- the liners are printed on the back cover of the gatefold. Was it more economical to just use the Vox pressing of the second disc and to concentrate the budget on the first?
