      1. Hi, I have two of your “wanted!” CD’s from the Great Performances series in my garage that I’d like to digitize but am new to ripping flac files, scanning cover art, etc. If you’re using the numbering here: https://www.discogs.com/label/94800-CBS-Great-Performances?page=1 , then I have the following CD’s you’re looking for. I’d just need someone to help walk me through ripping & scanning, where to upload, etc:

        CD 24: Szell, Cleveland SO: Mahler Fourth Symphony
        CD 90: Pachelbel Canon, Baroque Favorites

  1. Thank you for the excellent music.

    I have #94 on vinyl, will eventually rip to FLAC on my Mac.

  2. Many thanks. There are a lot of wonderful performances.
    Warmest greetings.

  3. Maravillosa e inacabada (¡lástima!) selección de obras maestras. ¡¡¡Gracias!!!
