 A Blast from the Past May 27, 2013 By C. PRAZAK (ELMHURST, IL) See All My Reviews "I remember listening to these recordings on FM radio decades ago, but I never got around to purchasing them. Now that I have them on MP3 I am not sorry I waited. These recordings are flawless and no scratching, popping, rumble or wow. Fleisher is good now, but he was remarkable then." Report Abuse
