IMHO the way to get the most improvement out of any CSNY album is to eliminate the Y.

After a week on the road, I came back to see this and Thanks for sharing! Have fired it up and also the Fremaux recordings.

Could someone enlighten me why there are 2 versions of the Ninth on this album? The first I just went through, clarity and detail, depth and richness are all improved. Some spots still a thinny amplitude, but thankfully not in the final choral movement.

Kudos to David Hurwitz for keeping these nuggets of gold:

"In the Ninth we are treated to the first ever release of the performance in stereo (alongside the mono version), although the sonic differences really are pretty minimal–a bit less boomy in the bass, perhaps, and better balanced. The most important difference with this latest remastering is that the scherzo now starts on track two, as opposed to the end of track one as in the previous 88-disc big Karajan box. It’s good to see this error corrected. In general, the sonics have come up very well and seem to have a bit more warmth and naturalness as compared to earlier issues. It is easy to understand how this cycle was regarded as a major achievement in its day. It still is.

-- David Hurwitz, ClassicsToday.com"
