PABLO CASALS: THE ORIGINAL JACKET COLLECTION is a stellar set of 10 of Casals original Columbia LP recordings on 10 CDs, each in a Mini-LP Cover from the original LP. One of the frustrating things about the online description is that there has been no listing of which albums are included. Here is a listing of the original Columbia LP numbers, titles and composers:
COLUMBIA ML 4349 PRADES FESTIVAL 1950 - BACH
COLUMBIA ML 4350 PRADES FESTIVAL 1950 - BACH
