Description: Although nothing here is otherwise unavailable (the original Vox Box is still available but hard to get), much of the repertoire is pretty rare and, if you never got it on LP or the first Vox CD reissue, this set is the cheapest of the two. Orchestra of Radio Luxembourg; Darius Milhaud, Bernard Kontarsky (Op. 228 & Op.332), Louis de Froment (Le bœuf). Original 1968 and 1972 Vox recordings and 1994 Vox CD release.
