Beautifully played

RCA incorrectly labeled 1949.12.10.

In reality the overall best balance is probably the LP. I really should try to get a good EQ out of one of these. IMG a little over filtered and RCA to thin and bright.

The proper high end balance is somewhere in between . The CDs are about 2.5% faster than the LP. I haven't checked which is correct but the CDs sounds a little more natural.
