    1. My next venture into this collection is going to be “The Franklin Mint Beethoven Symphony Cycle”. Everything is ripped, but it will probably be appearing over time (along with with other titles from the collection too, of course).

      Is this the woodchucker rip? Either way, thanks for creating and uploading this massive post!

        1. hmmm, that comment looks familiar… ;)

          Yes, this *is* the woodchucker rip.

  1. Hi Whatever.
    Great post. Do you have by any chance any informations about ripping equipment used for this huge task ?

    Many thanks !

  2. Thanks, I’ve been wanting to complete this set.
    BTW, what is the woodchucker rip and how does it compare to TheNightOwl’s set?

    1. The woodchucker rips originally appeared on Demonoid a few years ago. They’re what alerted me to the collection.

      From all accounts that I’ve heard from people who have heard both, my rips sound better. But whatever gets extra special thanks for uploading the entire set and all the work that goes along with it.

      But by all means, please compare for yourself.

      1. TheNightOwl, Thanks for the info.
        I’ll download this set but upgrade to yours when they become available.
        I really love these recordings. I have a couple of them on SACD (Solti’s “Orchestral Highlights from The Ring” for instance) and I prefer your Franklin rips over the SACD..

        1. Sorry, I ment Szell’s “Orchestral Highlights from the Ring”

          How embarrasing.

  3. Yes, this is the woodchucker rip. I appreciate the re-up. Enjoy.

    1. Thanks for ripping/posting this in the first place, woodchucker! If it wasn’t for you, I probably wouldn’t have known about this.

  4. You’re welcome The Night Owl. Yes, I originally posted this set on Demonoid about 3 years ago. I very happy that it is still “alive”.

  5. NightOwl – where are your rips? I am confused. Are they circulating online? You say:

    “From all accounts that I’ve heard from people who have heard both, my rips sound better.”

    How were they able to hear both rips and compare? :) Please let us know where we are able to find your rips of this massive collection. Woodchucker’s sound great to my ears, I’d love to compare!

    1. I haven’t ripped the entire collection, but all of the ones I’ve ripped are here on boxset as well as over at

      1. Thank you! I was just curious how far along your rips were. On you on a schedule or just whenever they come, they come? :)

        1. No, there’s no schedule. When they come, they come.

          However, I will say, the next ones I’m doing are going to be the complete Beethoven Symphony cycle. They’re all ripped, it’s just a matter of getting to them…

  6. I have been listening to these Woodchucker rips this weekend on my big rig and I must say that they sound excellent! Don’t miss out on these, folks.

    Thanks Woodchucker!

  7. Would you be so kind as to see about the 2nd part of LP 81 (Handel – “Messiah”), please? The record can’t move forward (some place in the middle of). I’d be most grateful if you could present a corrected version of – thanks a lot in advance.

  8. Formidable, merveilleux, sublime!
    Merci infiniment Whatever.
    Ce site est superbe, un vrai trésor pour tous les amoureux de belles musiques…

  9. … et merci également à Woodchucker!

    (Thank you soooooooo much Whatever and Woodchucker) :)

  10. I’m listening to Carmen/Bizet and the soung is incredible…
    I’m really impressed by the quality.
    I can’t wait to listen all other treasures.

    Thank you VERYYYYYYYY much, again and again :)

    1. What a fantastic post!
      Thanks a lot for these wonderful recordings.

  11. Thanks for your origianl ripping,Woodchucker :) &
    also thanks for your uploading,Whatever!!!
    and last,TheNightOwl ~~Thanks for your explanations.
    I could know more things about this collection via your conversations.
