Analogue recording

This is a well-regarded recording, and it certainly SOUNDS great, as you'd expect from a MoFi. There are lots of recordings of Holst's Planets, but not very many in multichannel, and this disc does the source tape all kinds of justice, in both the stereo and multichannel layers.

The problem is the performance is just not very good. It's a snoozefest of a Planets runthrough, just not one of my preferred renditions at all.

Even the compromised Sony SACD of the Bernstein version is better than this.
