This copy seems to be a promotional one, because of a sticker on the rear cover, “telling” that this is “Manufacturers Property Not For Sale”.
This recording was made shortly after Frühbeck de Burgos had lead the piece in concert with the New Philharmonia. The performance, which he conducted from memory, was hailed as a breakthrough in nuanced yet sometimes barbaric intensity. The chorus and soloists gave Frühbeck de Burgos everything he asked for in this recording. I highly recommend this recording.

Note: the record with Concerto No. 12 had a big, hugly and very deep scratch, ca. 4 cm, exactly in the middle of the grooves, touching the whole 2nd mov. of this concerto. Impossible to restore (pick-up jumped at every turn like a frog), record is destroyed. Mov. 1 and 3 were restored, but I had to take mov. 2 (44.1 kHz/16 bit) from the CD-Edition, that Mr. Whatever offers. The cover was restored by me in a long Photoshop session. Reposted, now with FF links edit feb/21/2013 – with the help of a friend, who provided the missing 2nd mov of the 12th concerto, we have now all files from vinyl in 24/96 – please DL the missing file and replace the old one.
