Hi Bob. The 4-CD JSP set apparently is still the best, having been
transferred by the late J. R. T. Davies. Originally issued separately, this
box is just a repackaging of the original. However, no one seems to have
done as well. This is also the consensus of the experts on 78-list, who do
not like the sound of the Sony set.
