It's all about the music, dude! Sit down, relax and listen to some tunes.

RE: Not too impressed by Manze's VW London Symphony

Where did you find a download? As a CD it is sold out here in the UK and a re-pressing is awaited I understand. The only download is from Onix' own website but is limited to MP3. They appear to think that offering 320 KS/s is something to boast about :-(

BTW, later recordings in the cycle e.g. the new symphs 3 & 4 have had a rather lukewarm reception from the Britcrits. So I really don't have a burning desire to own it or the earlier issue(s?)in the cycle at the moment but I would like to form a judgement.

The Previn is really excellent. I have an RCA Gold Seal copy on vinyl but the SQ could be better. The Boult is preferable in that respect.
