Charles Munch, Boston Symphony
"Brahms: Symphony no. 1" (Vinyl)

Brahms' least known symphony (to me) is beautifully captured on this RCA shaded dog record.   I find so few of these records that don't look like hockey pucks.   Whether it's because of record changers or decades of misuse, to find one of these records in truly playable shape is a red-letter day.

This is also a mono pressing, so if I had to estimate I would say this is from the mid-50's.
