Notes & Reviews:

Three of these discs are previously unissued concerts of Sir Thomas Beecham conducting Canadian orchestras from 1960. The fourth bonus disc contains live BBC broadcasts from 1958 and 1969.

Sunday Times
The performances still pulsate with the old energy. At times, he makes the CBC Symphony play like a Beecham orchestra in its Tlan and phrasing.
