Description: An even casual perusal of the list above will reveal works you probably never knew existed unless you are the most rabid Malcolm Arnold fan in history. That and the fact that Conifer was never the easiest label to get hold of while it was with independent distributors makes the ridiculous price of less than 3 bucks a disc make up for the fact that, as in all of this series of Sony box-sets, there are no notes. 11 CDs. Original 1989-1998 Conifer releases.
