  2. Great post! Yun-ming. Once you ever played in a band, you will love these wind orchestra recordings. I still remember the enthusiasm to collect any woodwinds performance in my senior high years. Way to go!

  3. Hi Yun-ming,
    Thank you so much for sharing this great record.
    By the way, I just uploaded 6 stunning recordings, remasters from Japanese Blu-Spec CD that sound better than a lot of HD Tracks 24Bits/96kHz high resolution albuns I already onw and much smoother and cleaner than SHM-CD's.
    Don't forget that I upload only very high quality sound records and high resolution files, ready for you use with iTunes in your high fidelity system, or with your iPhone, iPod or iPad!
    Please, check here: http://shareditunes.blogspot.com/ and keep the great music coming!
