A little disappointing


Perhaps it is because I was spoiled by a different recording on a different label that I used to own of this work (until it was stolen by a hotel employee in Glasgow). That recording was purt'near perfect, in my opinion. This one, although good, especially for a live performance recording, just doesn't have the quality and finesse of the other recording. It rather lacks both passion and conviction, and it doesn't help that the cowbells and wind machine sound pretty cheesy in this recording. Other than that, the orchestra turns in a reasonably decent performance. I just wish I had my old one back. Hold out, if you can, for something better.
