I spoke to Hardwick once on the telephone, c. 1987. He told me that he had
to do some CD work from tape copies because of time pressure. With respect
to special pressings I note that many if not most of the originals in the
original LP great performances series (in the late '50s and early '60s) are
supposed to have been destroyed in the mistaken belief that it would never
be possible to improve on the tape copies made at that time.
