I wasn't bashing the CSO or the piece. And yes, I CAN pick out the CSO when I hear them on many many recordings. And they are by far my fav orchestra. I only meant that the recording is so damn bad, I can't imagine how they were willing to put their name on it and take it to market. IMO, the CSO was in many ways-stylistically & "focused-ensemble-wise," at their best during the Fritz years (I have several Reiner/CSO recordings which are of excellent recording quality). Hence (I suppose) the reason it was released, is for appreciation of those qualities evident during Fritz Reiner's term, by those looking to hear more of the CSO from this period. Man, youguys sure took a brief comment and filled it with your own personal projected feelings. Youguys must be shrinks, they are really good at doing that.
