The 1955 French National Radio 'live' recording of Walter conducting the Brahms 2 was also issued on the Japanese label 'Seven Seas'(CD). The same as that issued on Tahra. Also the Japanese label issued some Haydn and Mozart symphonies, also from French Radio 1955. I am not sure whether these are still available. As far as I can remember the Japanese edition had slightly clearer bass register, although overall there was not much in it regarding sound quality. The Harmonia Mundi shops in Paris used to stock both editions. But it is worth checking by phone or e mail.
