Notes & Reviews:

"Most of the recordings have been issued before, but a handful -- Baker's Sea Pictures and Mackerras' Imperial March -- have rarely if ever been available before. Naturally, the sound is variable -- the quality of a 1933 acoustic recording differs vastly from a 1972 stereo recording -- but it's consistently as good as the best sound of its time. Anyone who loves Elgar is going to have to hear these discs." -All Music
