    I found a sealed LP copy on ebay last year for $30. What a delight. And yes, biiiiiggg tympani wacks!

    If you like Appalachian Spring Suite try The Moscow Sessions on Sheffield Labs TLP-1000 with Dimitri Kitayenko conducting the Moscow Philharmonic. This direct-to-disc recording was the outcome of an early effort at glasnost with the Sheffield team (Lincoln Mayorga and Doug Sax, etc.) and American conductor Lawrence Layton visiting Moscow in 1987?. There were 3LPs, bundled as a box and available separately. This was Sheffield at their height with superb performances and recording. The Russians had this huge bass drum that easily over powered the tympani.

    sorry for the interruption ... now back to your thread :-)
    Tim, the moscow sessions were not D2D, keith Johnson of Reference Recording fame engineered them in collaboration with Sheffield. they used Wilson's Ultramaster R2R deck to capture the historic sessions. nonetheless the SQ is spectacular on those LPs.

      My mind said Sheffield Labs and my fingers typed d-2-d. Thanks for catching that! I won't even bother to look at my box. :-) I'm vaguely recalling the d2d albums are prefixed with 'Lab' - I think Larry told me that - and the Moscow Sessions are not. On the same side as Copland's 'Suite', is Shosty's Festive Overture - a fine performance also with big drums at the end, a real plate spinner worth hearing for one of the (if not the) most challenging clarinet parts a musician will find.

        Here is another Telarc CD I am a big fan of. Yes, I like Pipe Organ. Great sounding and great performances. I really like Track 7.

          Nothing like a good organ recording that moves some air!

        I just found this Hybrid SACD in a Thrift Store over the weekend. It's an old school style Blues album. It may be the best sounding digital media that I own. Both Redbook and SACD layers sound really good.
