Solal's music on this record is fantastic.

Side B begins with the Adagio from Mozart's Clarinet Concerto in A (Jack Brymer / Sir Thomas Beecham) unfortunately presented here in horrifyingly bad quality. Distortion to the MAX!

A far superior pressing of this startlingly beautiful classical recording exists here:

Wish all record companies took audio quality more seriously. Not worth presenting a recording in '45RPM Remastered Edition' if the original is distorted.

"Record marked as 45 RPM on cover and label, plays at 33 1/3."
Not true, at least not for my copy. So either the person writing this found the music too fast for his tastes, or there exists a misprint.
