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

Actually, I have the CD reissue of that Malko performance

And I agree with everything you say about that recording, including the excellent two-channel sound. The CD reissue took the Classics for Pleasure cover for some reason:

It was one of those recordings that was first issued as an RCA LP in this country apparently by some arrangement with EMI. It seems to have foreshadowed the mania for humorous covers that really got going in the mid-60's:

Malko seems to have been an interesting character. I think that one of the Testament reissues shows a picture of Malko with a chimp on his shoulder! (Unfortunately, I can't find it on Google Images.) He also apparently used to harass Walter Legge to give him more recording assignments, which Legge seemed to dole out to him with reluctance! ;-)
