For the record...

...I'll talk to Billy at my local shop. ;-)
P.S. I was actually considering doing that with the Gould - Goldberg which is actually moving the earth for me right now. And, I don't have it in any format. (except youtube - which by the way is splendid - as are the toccatas (again, only on tape, cd) I do have 2 copies of the Schubert song cycle though, so it's priorities I guess...
P.S.S. I enjoy reading your posts, too. I must say you have the ability with your vocabulary to turn my brain into a pretzel that I must untwist. Great! The other day you actually used 'queer' in its now outmoded (?) context. I try using it sometimes and after I ask myself, "Should I feel strange for doing that?" And, your brightness shines my day... A lass after my own heart. I tend to love words as music and you are quite swell at it. Keep it up!

Highly feasible ($15 + shipping) for a what's appears to be a solid used copy (i.e., VG rating, Amazon Fulfillment, and reputable seller): http://www.amazon.com/Schubert-Die-Schoene-Muellerin/dp/B0079O2N7I

Look forward to your future posts!

...cassette and cd only. Vinyl, someday soon?

I love that particular song cycle and, while I realize it is only visual background for the audio clip, I am still compelled to ask whether you own a vinyl copy?

I possess the DG cd, which - happily - also contains Erlkoenig, An die Musik, and Heidenroeslein.

While sitting here reading, I'm listening to renditions of Tchaikovsky's 6th symph. (11/24/47)) and the Nutcracker (11/19/51) performed by the NBC SO under Toscanini's critique-proof hands!/peace, kate

While there is great variance among subjectively rated stand-out shows, 2/14 is one of those special performances around which community consensus coalesces.

Phenomenal open-structured jamming; note particularly what is formally called the Spanish Jam out of Born Crossed-Eyed, as well as the free-reigned improvisational workout between Alligator and Caution, the latter preceding a Feedback for which renowned taper Michael Getz "urge[s] everyone to sit down and let this thing grab you by the collar" as "it feels like the universe has been turned inside out, revealing the band as mere mortal puppets all along".

Noteworthily, Getz concludes by stating, "Serious listening to this show reveals such a sheer depth of soul-awakening power that it astonishes me to remember just how young a band they were at the time".

Love to hear your thoughts! /k

An Ode to Intersecting Musical Orbits!

Hi ACH! Wow, I was just listening to TAAB while driving the puppies out to the lake for a swim early this a.m.! It may just be the deadhead in me, but I've really become enamored of that MSG '78 bonus version on my rerelease, as well as the live iteration from '77 on "Bursting Out" ... much like our beloved Dead, Tull seems to have thrived onstage. Yet, there is a discernible dearth of live material on the market, to include ROIOs, especially from early on.

I'm envious of your pending concert experience; I've been reading interviews and watching documentaries while becoming increasingly impressed with IA's wit, intelligence, humor, and common sensibility. Have you seen "Fish & Sheep, RocknRoll" : IA as squire, entrepreneur, superstar, and husband!

Question: Is he touring with any remnants of the band's early incarnations? In any event, I'll look forward to your review!

Nothing novel to report on the listening front this a.m.; I've got disc 2 from #11 in for a third listen - what a 2nd set!/kate
