The LP (2 copies) had quite some matrix noise - but applying minimal 'de-click' was ruinous; the original 1954 LP would require even more tinkering... so the occasional (hopefully) minor tick, etc, will be evident...This is a 'request' from some time back and should be better than that on another blog - which apparently sounded rubbish !   The performances are very nice.. (a few edits are audible).  33SX 1030 Sleeve/Sleeve-note >>>
