Great Film Fantasies - Kunzel          (1 of 2 found this review helpful)
  January 15, 2011

I cannot honestly recommend this one. The orchestra's performance just cannot match John Williams' original. I never thought I was say this, but I'd recommend the original CD, and just wait until they release the original recording on SACD. I say this being a fan of the originals. But if you're not ... more

I bought this on PCM CD when it was new, and loved it, this was using a mediocore stereo system. I liked it enough to buy it again, now that I have a nice SACD and Yamaha 2-channel system.
