Mozart a Paris -- is it worth it?

Okay, I've been hearing a lot of press about the Electric Record Company and their high quality vinyl reproductions of Johanna Martzy's Bach Sonatas and Partitas for Solo Violin as well as this 7 LP boxed set entitled "Mozart a Paris".  This boxed set, in its original release from the 1950s, is apparently one of the most collectable and expensive classical records ever.  Has anyone heard the ERC reissue?  I realize that the recordings are in mono, just like the Martzy, but are they that incredible? 


  1. Worth is such a funny and elusive concept. How about: Would you rather have this box set or a second hand Prius?

  2. By the way, those Beethoven sonatas by Annie Fischer are really terrific. A great record, and the Angel re-issue from the '50s or '60s is also very good. And not that expensive.
