Considered purely in isolation, this is a decent enough recording of Rimsky's good ol' warhouse, in excellent early Decca sound. But that's not how we judge oft-recorded classical pieces. Taken in a broader context, this is easily outclassed - in both sound and performance - by the classic Beecham/RPO/EMI and Reiner/CSO/RCA recordings. So those would remain my recommendations. Why buy fish paste when you can get caviar?
