Last night, I heard something that I otherwise would have posted to Chris' Album of the Evening thread (http://www.computeraudiophile.com/content/Album-Evening) -- but it was not digital. I had my first listen of a LP, dated 1963, that I picked up last weekend from a garage sale for the princely sum of fifty cents.
Album: Beethoven Piano Sonatas No. 11, 19, 20
Artist: Sviatoslav Richter
The condition was remarkably good, including cover and inner sleeve, and the performance was very intense, almost wild. And it had liner notes by Igor Kipnis, one of my favorite harpsichordists. I just may try my hand at ripping this thing to digital form.
