  1. I’m just deligted that you have this set
    from the legendary conductor
    :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll:

  2. Again, “Whatever” is too nonchalant – i.e., “relaxed and calm in a way that shows that you do not care or are not worried about anything” (M-Webster Dictionary) – is perhaps – in a sense – true of you – BUT YOUR meticulous CARE FOR DETAIL (Rach & Owl), QUALITY, (APE & flac – lossless) AND VARIETY FOR THIS WEBSITE IS ANYTHING BUT – “WHATEVER!”
    Old (mono re-mastered) or new (blu-ray) or Hi-Def (24-96 & 24-192) you demonstrate the highest taste and perfection for which the disguise of “whatever” cannot hide!
    In American slang, you are “Super-Dude!”
    In any language you are worthy of respect and taste and excellence of a high order!
    A tip of the hat in honor of Art(whatever)!
