I found this one in the bargain bins. 50 cents. Good involving performances. Recording quality is high.

Matrix Numbers: A1 / A1

I'd grade this one N/M for vinyl  (near silent) and VG (cover). The back side cover has some child-like scribbling. I'm happy to have it. Some adult took good care of this Lp for many, many years. And that same someone's child made drawings on the cover, perhaps took a scolding for it, then grew up.

The Faust Ballet music is quite good. I haven't listened to this particular piece ever before, yet I was immediately familiar with parts of it. The theme song from the TV show "Alfred Hitchcock Presents" is heard within. Now I know where they got it.

The Bizet Carmen Suite performance also draws me in.

So there I was sitting on the floor at my local Half-Price Books sorting through the discounted Lps in the lower shelves. This one and a Tchaikovsky box set on DG presented themselves.
