This box also wasa good deal and offered up some very fine recs of Mahler and others. Not quite as eclectic and high calibre as the Reiner box (LAPhil ain't like the Chicago, folks), but with Decca, there's some excellent SQ.

This time around I have no cds, but quite a few on LPs from that box. And yes 60s and 70s DECCA are hard to beat SQ wise from the analogue era.
With almost 10 metres of LPs taking up a lot of shelf-space in my listening room not getting played nearly as often as before the Chord Mscaler entered my equation, I am even contemplating moving them to another room to make space for my ever growing cd collection.
PS Presto and the other Brit companies I used to buy loads from are not available here in Sweden any longer since Brexit apparently.
Tried the links but not working.

Nice set, I have it too. Mehta and the LAPO were my hometown team when I was growing up. Ironically I haven’t paid much attention to these recordings until fairly recently, but they are very nice. Well played, well recorded and Mehta keeps everything moving.
