What a great piece for Sam to share with us. As to the demise of Telarc, it is sad but a true testiment of our times. The folks at Concord should be ashamed, but are probably not. In an age were quality of recordings is dismissed in favor of MP3 crap, it should come as no surprise the industry turns, dismisses, and ignores those who cared about audio quality. We have lost respect for the music and now a lack of respect for those who did care is bound to follow.
I am glad for the Concord catalog, but this is a slight that needs to be corrected. The sooner the better. Let respect and civility reign.
I immediately felt a great sadness for Mr. Renner and his staff at the closing of Telarc. There efforts will be greatly missed.
