Any of you veterans have an opinion on Celibidache's Brahm Symphonies 2-4 with the Munchner Philharmoniker. I'm thinking about grabbing a copy. Any better?

Prepare yourself for some slooooooow tempi.
I've also got a few of those Bohm Mozarts on vinyl, I must dig them out then soon and have another listen.

For Brahms' symphonies I can recommend the cycle conducted by Kurt Sanderling...
I'm not personally averse to slow, so I do like Celibidache, but the Sanderling set is hard to beat.

Also, the Kleiber VPO Brahms 4 is a classic, as is the Furtwangler one.
The Abbado BPO 1st is also a blinder.

No, I've only heard the ones with the Staatskapelle Dresden. I will have to check those out, thanks.

The Dresden set has been considered of the very best since it first appeared. Sanderling was a great conductor who was sadly stuck behind the Iron Curtain and those of us in the west were denied hearing him much until late in his career. I did hear him with Los Angeles Philharmonic doing Bruckner 4 - a concert experience I'll never forget.
