16/44 FLAC  Mega Download        24/96 FLAC 
Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra  conducted by  Franz Schalk   
HMV  D.1473-7  Album no.96  Matrices: Ck 2854-63  (II-II-II-II-I-II-II-II-II-II).   Recorded:  4/11 April 1928 - Mittlerer Konzerthalle, Vienna  
Original 1928 set (my Red label set is pressed from later-sequence metal parts).  Side 1 transferred @ 0.5dB less than sides 2-6, and 1.0dB less than sides 7-10. Side 6 has some harmonic/cutter distortion.  The 24/96 file is somewhat superior...and a better source if you want to 'noise-reduce' the file; thereby likely turning it into near-featureless sludge.
