M2 w/ Ben. Zander on Linn - opinions?
« on: September 26, 2022, 10:47:10 PM »
Hi there. Streetlight Records in San Jose has the Ben Zander M2 (Linn Records) used for 15 or 16 bucks. I have plenty of store credit with Strassenlicht (Streetlight). Should I pull the trigger? I've sampled it on Youtube. It's a fairly expansive performance. I'm not crazy about the choral section of the finale taking so much time. However, the big ending has tons of organ - and a good sounding organ at that.

It's part of my collection.  Not that bad of a performance.  Unfortunately, unlike the other Zander Mahler symphonies on Telarc, the lecture he gave about M2 had to be downloaded, as opposed to being part of the album itself.  I downloaded the lecture, found it interesting.  If you get this performance from the used store you mention, I can send you the lecture if you want.

Thank you, but I can without it.
