I also have the Bernstein from the Complete set with NYPO
There is the Horenstein/Unicorn

I really like Solti's take on 1st symphony, two versions available here early LSO and later CSO:CSO 1LSO 1LSO 1,2
I listed the Solti/LSO/London 1,2 because doesn't cost much more than single CD. However the preferred version of Mahler 2nd for Solti is his CSO version only available on complete set, one of top 5 versions available IMO. His LSO Mahler 1 is probably his best versionof that work, although the CSO 1st can hardly be faulted.
The Kubelik/DG Originals 1st you have is nice version also. There is a live stereo Kubelik 1st which is supposed to be even better but I haven't heard it.
