Thank you, but I cannot take the whole credit I'm afraid. I actually wrote the review in question twice; in the first I expressed puzzlement about the performance of Appalachia, which because of the timing difference (and the attribution of the baritone solo) I assumed was a different recording to that I had one owned on a Philips LP. Rob Barnett kindly referred my concerns to Stephen Lloyd, and thanks to his helpful observations I was then able to recast the review into the form in which it now appears. I should perhaps add the usual caveat that Stephen Lloyd should take no responsibility for some of the conclusions I drew in my review, which were entirely my own; but the clarification which Mr Becker is kind enough to acknowledge would not have been possible without assistance from Mr Lloyd!
Thank you for taking part in the MusicWeb International Forum.
