24/96 files - now 16/44 only...This scintillating performance (the piano has extra percussive clarity as its lid was removed..) is recently mentioned by Christopher Howell...But this isn't the rubbish Khachaturian transfer alluded to.. The tape-to-disc sound is very good and seems to be a slightly better transfer than the earlier EMI mastered WRC issue Sleeve-note >>>
