    This is probably a stupid question but here we go - do you have/know it?
    I know the cycle and its top of my list to get but I couldn't review it cos I've only heard the disc with symphonies 7&8 on it (which was very good). Its one of a number of cycles I've still yet to get but it's a bit pricey. I'm still going thru another 6 sets of LvB at the moment so they'll make up part 6 of this series. I won't say what they are. You'll have to wait.
    Ps. I'm aware it's on one of the streaming sites but I can't be bothered. I need to live with it for a few weeks to do it justice.

    No problem Merl - when the opportunity arises I'm sure you'll be interested to hear it.
    I appreciate it isn't the easiest set to get at a reasonable price. I was extremely fortunate to pick it up last summer after patiently waiting for a couple of years - a new set for £12.89 + P&P.

    It gets very mixed reviews..... From excellent to average. Not heard that 7th and 8th for a few years so when I do get a copy of it I'll be interested to see what I think. If you see it going cheap on CD or digital download let me know, Malx.
