Just give us the FLAC files to download for a fee, please. Does anybody younger than 70 care about the pomp and circumstance of physical media anymore? "180g audiophile vinyl"... "lavish booklets"... they are pushing horse carriages when the world has moved on to automobiles. :rolleyes:
I've seen bookstores selling pop music on vinyl. It's back in style now. Though I agree (CDs are fine, but no need for anything more exotic)... but I see no reason to shell out money for a new remastering of a recording I already have in good stereo sound.

Presumably the first stereo one was the live performance conducted by Keilbetth that Culshaw’s Decca team recorded in Bayreuth in 1955 - Culshaw suppressed it because he wanted his studio Ring to succeed.

I think Testament finally issued it in the 2000s?
Correct. It was issued in 2005 or 2006 (phonographic copyright 2006), fifty years after it was recorded. Peter Andry, one of the original producers for the project, wrote a note for the liner of Testament's release, which was pretty neat.
