    I have it (Goodall Ring) but it cost me about $90! This would have been a GREAT deal. Oh well, win some lose some.

    I am not such a big Davis fan, but maybe should become so.

    Davis is a very good, capable conductor, but I don't know that he is good on all the material presented there.

    The Boulez Erato box is a great deal for modern music fans. I'm very happy with it. I hope DG re-issues the Debussy box. I hesitated and lost out on that one.

    I listed this when it first came out. I'll give the track listings as they are an interesting mix. The Guild's explanation of this box says most of these are works they couldn't fit into other offerings. There are some great things here Brahm's orchestral dances, R. Strauss, Gliere Symphony 3, Goldmark Symphony 1, none of which I was familiar with. Then several items we all know, Sibelius Symphony 2, Enescu Rhapsodies and others. Sound quality is good on all and performances are for you to determine, I liked them all.

    One caution however, no composer listing on the tracks. I entered all of those manually and got it over with. A little inconvenience that the Guild does not always address, but for the price I don't mind.

    I've got the Messiaen organ box on order from Presto.

    I noticed starthrower was listening to the 22-disc Stravinsky box. That was the best purchase I've ever made. It may have been on his recommendation.

    I remember paying under 25 dollars for that set. Incredible, historic set of recordings!

    I guess we'll never see it at that price again.

    I wouldn't pay 60 dollars for it. If I was in the market I'd get the expanded set for the going price of around 93 dollars. Or better yet, buy some individual discs of good performances.

    A Bach Guild offering starting today. $.99. There is some repeat from the previous Big Vivaldi Box they release several years ago which is no longer available for download. BG gives a convoluted explanation on their website. That aside, this seems to have enough new items that I will no doubt purchase it. I have the previous Vivaldi Box and it is one of the best they ever offered, it is available for listening on the Youtube. Big Vivaldi Box 2 is also available on the Youtube.

    Who's getting what of these? I'm really torn from among them.
