So, in the name of completionism, I broke down and purchased the DVD-Audio of Colin Davis conducting Symphonie Fantastique. I already had the superior performance of him doing it on Pentatone SACD, but I wanted to complete my collection and the price was acceptable. What I found was...weird.
The Symphonie Fantastique is absolutely there, at least on the video side. But popping it in to rip to my NAS I noticed that the DVD-Audio program is actually "Stokowski Spectacular," released by Pye as a quad record in 1976: Leopold Stokowski – Stokowski Spectacular (1976, Vinyl). I don't know how the heck this happened. Do I have a weird error disc? I don't think Stokowski Spectacular was ever released in digital form?
