  1. Many thanks - highly enjoyable music! (If memory serves, this Rio Grande is at least noticeably better than your earlier source.)

    Hope you are doing well, too.

    1. Having just checked, it appears the 1988 version had been additionally 'de-clicked'/noise-reduced - leading to a loss of dynamics (though these 1975 transfers have a 'gritty' background - but now miss the extended range I can get from my [noisy] 78 dubs: had 2 sets of Rio Grande - think the laminate version got broke!).

      I'm fine, BTW...anything 'wrong' is now pretty minimal.

    2. Glad to hear it.

      And thanks for the info, it'll be educational to listen to the old transfer again for comparison. Hope you'll be further tempted with the Poulenc/Satie(!)..
