I have heard several different releases of these recordings over the years (LP, various CD releases, and now this DVD-A), and I'm very disappointed to say that the Silverline DVD-Audio version sounds TERRIBLE! The tonal and dynamic range is flat, dull, and lifeless -- a shock since the music on the standard stereo CD sounds like it was recorded yesterday.
Contrary to Silverline's claim, the music has NOT been remixed into "stunning 5.1 surround sound," it has merely been electronically processed to add fake echo and fake room dynamics. The standard CD in 2-channel stereo sounds more "surrounding" than the DVD-A! Of the 50+ multichannel DVD-As and SACDs that I own, this is by far the worst sounding, and it is the only one that I regret buying.
