This review is relevent to the entire album, but since many people buy individual tracks, I'll repeat it here...

The music on this 1960 Grammy-winning (Best Classical Performance - Instrumental Soloist Or Duo - Other Than With Orchestral Accompaniment) album is wonderful, but the sound is a digital disgrace.

As expected with Amazon's digital "product", there is no indication of the source... what label provided the mp3 files, who did the remastering, et cetera... all of the things that allow serious music fans to make an informed decision. Well, feedback is all that's left to us, and I'm sorry to say that this reissue sounds terrible.

The biggest problem is the excessive noise reduction used on every track. This was a terrific-sounding recording, so why all the phasey, wind-tunnel NR artifacts? Was the source taped off a radio broadcast or someone's copy of the vinyl record? The result is unlistenable. There are also digital artifacts galore... 128 kbps is WAY too low a bit rate for acoustic classical music!!!... and most tracks suffer serious distortion, where the sound crackles and breaks up.

Oh, and no notes or cover art, but you already knew that.

I lost my copy of the original album forty years ago and have been hoping for a CD replacement from Angel or Capitol since the dawn of the digital era. Getting this instead is a slap in the face. It will probably be my last download. This isn’t a serious music format.
