    1. Was a strapping lad before - so just regaining/ed my composure.
      But it's now really difficult to find worthwhile non CD material to upload (pre-1963) - made more difficult by little contact/requests; and it's pure guesswork whether uploading 'on CD' material is sensible.
      Perusing M.Herman's discogs it seems possible quite a number of HMV/Melodiya never made it to CD:- only a few issues were pre-1963 (ie Chopin PC1 Davidovich/Arensky PC Kaplan) but some '70's Zhukov's are missing - Medtner/Tchaikovsy/R-K/Scriabin, as well as a nice Arensky Sym.1/Suite + some Khaikin Glazunov Symphonies - Glazounov PC's + Alexeev's 1980 HMV Prokofiev PC2/3 (odd..). But am wary of uploading such vintages.
      So seem to spend more time Pondering than actually Uploading - though anyway really dislike the time hand-editing takes: the Penance of being Perfectionist: and still don't believe a FLAC sounds the same as a WAV file!

  2. I can sympathize.....but only so far....as I am no match for your skill at these transfers or the knowledge you possess of the recordings and music.

    1. Years of editing these things, by the micro-second, has possibly made me more 'knowledgeable'!

    1. Best-Forgotten Records did a dub (bit pricier..) also of an earlier release, but this is actually very fine (lively/accurate) playing. Have a mono-only Mozart Flute+Harp concerto on Saga, but it sounds feebly-recorded (issued 1964).
