This is from a CD that was available from the web site www.luxtheater.com for a short time, and was a Live Broadcast recording. The discs are no longer available and neither is the web site. I have created the two files and made them into one for ease of listening. I wanted to share this with everybody that has never heard it and those that have heard it and want to hear it again if they did not get a hold of it. I bought it from the site years ago and continue to listen to them several times a year.
