    This is one of those records EMI did right by and released as a Quad DVD-Audio. Of course, it's long OOP.

    This is an absolutely fantastic recording. Thankyou! Mr. Preview at his finest.

    I think 'dreamy' classical music like this really benefits from quad, in fact any 'dreamy' music does, whether it's Holst, Debussy, Klaus Schulze, Tangerine Dream, Pink Floyd, or Brian Eno (a thought: were any of Eno's ambient album released as quad?)

    I have a Von Karajan Berlin Phil 1990(ish) recording which was always my definitive version, but the CD got scratched and jumps in various places. I've never got round to replacing it either with another copy or a different version, so I have high hopes for this DVD-A.

    I also have a Yoel Levi Atlanta Symphony Orchestra DTS CD and while the surround is great, it lacks the drive of the Von Karajan CD. The Yoel Levi does at least play reliably (and I now have it ripped).

    Superb.
    I'm a big Planets fan.
    My fave has always been the Halle version from the mid-70s, but I can't wait to hear this quad version!

    Thanks also for the recent Ravel.

    For me, ever since its original release, it's been 'the' planets of choice
