what a great selection - i Liked "fascination" and "Frissons de neige" as wonderful, evocative orchestral pieces

One of the first non 50s pop 78s I heard was Albert Sandler doing fascination, a beautiful record and while you'd think it common I have never had another copy since that one broke a very long time ago!

The odd thing is that i can't recall having that record and yet , as you say it's not that old and must have sold well in it's time but as usual you want one so it's rare when you don't want one you have loads !
