 Glad you asked!!! March 30, 2012 By Daryl Allman (Fairfax, VA) See All My Reviews "Sirs:
I'm 78 years old, grew up listening to Classical music and Opera and
have loved Ravel,s Bolero for years. This is the absolute worst case of volume control I've ever encountered. My CD player had been set on a "volume level" of 20 and I had to move it up to 37 for the beginning. After around 5 minutes I found that a setting of 30 and then 29 was sufficient. I doubt that I will be listening to my Arkiv
Bolero. Please let me know if you get around to reworking this recording in the future and I will consider "reviewing" your new endeavor.

In all fairness, I have enjoyed listening to the rest of the CD at a
"volume level" of 29 while typing this Review!"
