Classical music is the hot investment tip

Brian Rossmann has left a new comment on "Label me obsessed":
I have the CD re-issue and agree that this is a very special performance. But, sadly an original LP has so far eluded me. This recording has often been promoted by Art Dudley and others in the American audio press as not only a brilliant recording and performance, but an ideal introduction to classical music for the uninitiated. Consequently originals have become even more collectible and difficult to find. It was released in the US as Ang. S 36101. I'd settle for either but would dearly love to add the EMI to my collection. If anybody has a lead on a clean copy please get in touch. bwr000 at
This email prompted me to search the auctions sites. It appears my mint copy of the original LP issue of Barbirolli conducting English string music (ASD 521 in the UK) is worth upwards of 50 pounds sterling. I wonder how many MP3 files will be worth that in 45 years time? Brian, perhaps it is worth looking here? And what a comment on the mess that the financial wizards have got us into. My EMI LPs may be worth more than my EMI pension.
