Contains material from 36/04/10 Carnegie Hall.

The ULTIMATE Beethoven 7th.

Naxos clearly superior in tonal balance and dynamics to the rest. Contains both versions of the first movement.

Franklin mints and GS are good but the Naxos is much better.

TOSC 4 uses original slow first take of opening.but the whole disc is pitched fast to accomondate being on one side. milar to FM 72. Check this out again once you get pitch control to drop the speed.

VIC not bad with slight reverb.

CDN close to GS but with wear and distortion.

CA Reverb.

Pearl muddy.

Time/Life Filtered highs with slight reverb.
