I grew up with this album so I am partial to it but I also own or have owned nearly every other reading of the Grand Canyon Suite and it will always be my favorite Classical piece that is of American origin. Felix Slatkin really had the feel for this piece and I was really overjoyed when his version came out on CD. Some call it "cinematic" and many other things, I just call it an absolute pleasure to listen to whether I'm doing projects around the house or curled up reading a book, it's that good in my opinion. I already have 5 copies of the record album version and while the background noise of the electronics of the day really do show up on both of my McIntosh systems I get right past that when the music is presented, much better quality than the Red Seal recordings of Victory at Sea recorded just a few years earlier which kind of baffles me. In closing I think that anyone that likes the Grand Canyon Suite in particular should have a listen to this...RM
