Mahler: Symphony No. 2 - Zander        (3 of 4 found this review helpful)
  Review by Jon Benger Today 09:25 am

We are exposed to many recordings of Mahler 2 with diverse approaches to telling the story, and it is difficult to find one which satisfies in all respects.

  Review by feinstei April 17, 2014

I only rated this a "5" in terms of sonics because it's the best sounding issue of Wheels Of Fire that's ever been done. The studio album was recorded miserably because the volume of Cream's oversized amps and Baker's overwrought drums overloaded and clipped the recording equipment that Mr. Dowd ... more
