 Great Ormandy Strauss! February 1, 2017 By Arthur W. (Pleasant Valley, NY) See All My Reviews "These recordings are probably Ormandy's last recordings of Johann Strauss. The Josef Strauss Firebell Polka was on the original LP. Perhaps, SONY will reissue all of the Ormandy Columbia / RCA Strauss recordings soon." Report Abuse
