    Try on amazon, they have some.

    No, you're not crazy
    One of my favourite 'Rite of Spring's is on Laserlight:

    The other label that ran alongside Laserlight back in the day was Zyx, and I have a few nice recordings on that label too including a Mozart box set and a not-too-shabby Mahler 2

    There will come a time soon when Youtube won't let us do this...

    I can't agree with you on this one, mbhaub. I find Ferencsik's LvB cycle 'serviceable'. It's not bad but it lacks punch, is a bit pedestrian at times, and has poor sound which lacks bass. On the plus side it has some lovely inner detail and the winds are sometimes gorgeous. A very Bohm-esque set but with a poorer orchestra and sound. If you like Ferencsik's cycle you'll love Bohm.

    I just remembered that I saw a few LaserLight CDs in a used CD store recently. People who are looking for them might want to check any used CD stores in their area. Thrift stores might also have them. Book Off, a Japanese chain with a few locations in southern California and elsewhere, usually has a reasonable number of classical CDs on hand. I seem to remember seeing LaserLight CDs in the Irvine location not too long ago. These CDs sold well at the time, so it isn't surprising that they would be circulating around the used market now. I didn't buy any; I seldom buy physical CDs now since they take up too much space and I live in an expensive real estate market. Many of these recordings may be available as CDs or downloads on other labels now. Somebody sent me a private message indicating that Capriccio acquired the rights, and Brilliant Classics ended up releasing a few of them. Also, I remember finding some of them in budget mp3 download sets, but I can't remember which ones now.

    As I remember it, the Kegel/Beethoven set was originally East-German LPs, also released on the Western, rather expensive and prestigious Capriccio label.

    LaserLight CDs must have come in later, I think.

    I never heard of Zyx. Have to keep an eye out for that.

    Thanks
