 One of Felix Slatkin's best! December 27, 2013 By Alan W. (Madison, WI) See All My Reviews "I originally had this particular recording on a 7-1/2 IPS 1/4" 2-track stereotape on the original Capitol label. Having been a visitor at Capitol in those days I know first hand how it was done. Sad to say this transfer to digital was a disappointment in the sound department. It sounded flat and somebody cut the bass off. The original recording had one hundred percent better sound still good enough to be there with todays all digital recordings. I wish I still had that tape. Musically this probably the most "danceable" of the many recordings I've heard. It is a pleasure to hear this performance again. Recommended performance!" Report Abuse
