Boult's last (1978) recording of The Planets - which I have on LP only - is currently available on a mid-price EMI 'Great Recordings Of The Century' CD, i.e.

The Dorati Minneapolis 'Rite' - an old Mercury recording - seems to be currently unavailable, but I should be able to provide you with a copy if you're happy to email me your address.

As regards your comments re Van Morrison, serious food for thought there. I agree that 'Veedon Fleece' is very much in the same ethereal ball park as 'Astral Weeks', but had never considered 'Common One' to be likewise. But the more I think about it, you may have a very valid point. Whatever, you've encouraged me to play 'Common One' again, and that can never be a bad thing...
