This IMMACULATE looking Philips Dutch Import LP is the best sounding version of this music I’ve ever heard and one of the all time great performances as well.

The Solti on 180g Decca is a good record. This is a great one.

The sound is AMAZING on this is a Minty Decca Black and Silver LP.

This is my favorite Mahler 1st.

Guaranteed to trouce the Decca 180g pressing or your money back.
