The second disc included is a standard two-channel CD containing 16 bit/44.1 kHz data playable on all CD and DVD players. Transferred directly from the original 35mm three-track film by Bernie Grundman from Bernie Grundman Mastering and Len Horowitz from History of Recorded Sound at Bernie Grundman Mastering, Hollywood.

Another of the fabulous Goossens efforts conducting the London Symphony Orchestra in a rousing performance of this Berlioz masterpiece. This Bert Whyte recording is from Walthamstow Assembly Hall in London – the same hall used extensively by Decca and Kenneth Wilkinson. The performance, full of imaginative and brilliant orchestral sounds is wonderfully complemented by the 35mm sound which has a textural richness that is more realistic than any other tape format.
