      Hi Myles,

      Da Capo, the German distibutor of Fone had a batch at Munich High End. I got my copy directly from Mr. Ricci. The record is available on Fone's webshop.

      Just ordered from Acoustic Sounds. Though haven't received shipping notice yet. Strange.

  • I'm a huge Anat Cohen fan having seen her live on multiple occasions. Her new release is a brilliant homage to Moacir Santos in collaboration with guitarist Marcello Goncalves

    • Click image for larger version  Name:	 Views:	1 Size:	158.4 KB ID:	56349 I have been trying to win this record for the longest time on ebay. I already own the other two records in the series, but this one has alluded me until last night. 4:30AM auction out of Sweden. Victory was mine !!!!....$700.00 in NM condition. Some say this is Starker's best interp of the Bach Cello suites. Some say the 1965 Mercury (stereo & mono). I have both....can't really decide....

        When I met Starker, he looked at his Mercury recording, laughed for a moment and then added 'the sins of my youth." Doesn't sound like he would be happy with either!

        Hard to believe he felt that way...such is the life of a perfectionist. I treasure all three versions...the Columbia and both mono and stereo Mercury issues.

          Beethoven symphonies on vinyl should be interesting. This is from the official Berliner Philharmoniker Recordings web site:

          "While the CD / Blu-ray version was recorded using standard main and spot microphones, a one-point microphone set-up with only one pair of stereo microphones was used for the vinyl edition."

          Please share your impressions dcc ASAP.

          I had to solve a noise issue with the phono stage. It was a tube going bad. The problem is solved now. I had some spare tubes. The coming week will be very busy with little time for some listening to music. I am afraid that it will be for next weekend. I already had the high resolution download and I was quite impressed.

            Yes..I do have that Philips box set...much more affordable. The Milstein box set was acquired for $750.00.

        • Picked up 3 this week and have only listened to them once so far:



          This one has some good music and sounds like a very good recording.


          Interesting with a little Motown vibe.
