 one of the best Isles November 9, 2013 By Jonathan H. (Culpeper, VA) See All My Reviews "There is one moment in this CD that I think sells it. It's 12:19 into Isle of the dead. That's a signature Philly moment. I bought this CD when it was released and have kept it ever since for that moment. The argument about how much Stokowski is still in Philly's sound has certainly created jobs for people - but if 12:19 doesn't move you, then I'd say collecting Stokowski is probably out."
