  1. Rach,

    Thank you so much for these. I will cherish them for a long time.

    One more request if I may: now that you have all 12 volumes made available, would it be too much trouble to give us the scans of the back side of the volume covers? I think it will be tremendously helpful if we can get the breakdown of the tracks and the artists and so on in addition.


    • Indeed it would be nice but unfortunately not possible. Not all boxes were with that covers, when I bought them along the last 4-5 years…. In fact only 2-3 had those covers. The pics you see are from an insert that was in a box, illustrating all 12 boxsets + covers.

      The “nacked” box is in red textile and there is nothing on the rear side.


      Anyway, all tracks and artists of every box are stated in its posts. The tracks are stated in the DR-report

  2. Thank you very, very much for the whole series. A pleasure to listen not, not the least due to the quality of the rips…


  3. Thank you so much for your heroic effort on this famous Beethoven set. I once had one myself, but gave it away in the CD revolution. It is wonderful to have it again in digital form.
