Well, I'd need to exclude Jazz Albums, so...

FZ - YCDTOSA Vol. 2
Stones - Exile on Main Street
The Who - Quadrophenia
Derek and the Dominos - The Fillmore Concerts
Yes - Close to the Edge
Pink Floyd - Animals

SOOO many others, but that's the best I can do.

Yeah there was, since it'd died and Massagio was interested in it I suggested he start a new one.

NYPO on Sony or CSO on DG? I have both and for a long time preferred the NYPO version, but the last time I put on the CSO version I was blown away!

I only have the NY Philharmonic version.
And yes, I bet the DG is better.
Actually, I didn't know it existed.
Thanks for the info., I have to get it now ;) .

I have other DG discs recorded in 4D (Mahler & Stravinsky).
The quality would be perfect if only they could have avoided digital clipping in the loudest parts.
I'm really angry they could make such mistakes, using shit loads of technology :cry:

This thread, in fact, differs from the original conception I created, because it asked for 8-PIECES-OF-MUSIC-AND-ONE-BOOK-AND-ONE-LUXURY-ITEM. Why take 6 albums? Idiotic. For some of us, organising words and symbols in a beautiful manner, along the organisation of sounds, is the only thing that matters.

Basically:
My thread > this one
