Iconic Record Labels
I was interested to read about ACT in today's Guardian.
I would also thoroughly recommend the recently released DVD "Sounds and Silence - Travels with Manfred Eicher" about the ECM label. This is a sensitively made film with footage of Eicher and several ECM signed artists in various different musical genres.
I didn't know that any record labels were used as icons. Is it the greek or russian orthodox church which use them in this manner?
Interesting stuff, Old Grumpy
Don't be deterred by Panyan but offer up a thought for his breakfast companion - imagine being subjected to that degree of nitpicking first thing in the morning

As for choice...
I suppose the current big treat would be high-resolution downloads eg. Chandos, HDTT, Pristine, but only when some really rare or special rep. or performance appears on them.
