I don't know the reissue in question (although I did know the remasterer) so I 
don't know if it was done from a 78 set or the 10-inch lp, which as I recall 
may not have joined the sides either. And he may have been handed a tape or 
cassette with no alternate source available. Who knows? I'm also keeping an eye 
out for what I've seen in recent weeks, a reel containing a transfer I made at 
15 IPS years ago (from the same discs as DB may have).

If the noise had been properly addressed, it would be very difficult and unnecessary to give it this treatment and the unmerged last two sides is obviously how the mastering engineer left it. Mr Lennick believes that I have a copy of the 78s, if so, I'm going to do my own mastering.

I think of Richard Caniell's Immortal Performances Recorded Music Society and the problems he had with his transfers of old MET Opera and Toscanini/NBC Symphony broadcasts being tampered with by Naxos and Guild Music... which is why Caniell now produces his own CDs of his transfers, sold through his website.  The (unnamed) esteemed transfer engineer you refer to may not have had anything whatsoever to do with the orchestra-under-water filtering. I have no doubt Lennick has similar horror stories to tell--and in fact has told 'em in the past!
