Re: [ARSCLIST] Aren't recordings original sources?

And I still consider Anthony Griffith's transfers for HMV- especially
Sir Edward Elgar's performances reissued on LP, to be first class! 

Without Exception, And Second To None!

The transfers of jazz recordings from that period done by JRT Davies for
labels such as Frog, Hep, and Retrieval sound superb on my equipment.
Especially the Victors.

I haven't heard quite such good transfers of any classical material,
although Andrew Walter at EMI has done a few very good ones recently for
the "Great Recordings of the Century" series.
