The thickest disc ever?
I found an incredible disc box, about 16 cm thick... it's Marie Claire Alain's COMPLETE Organ Works by J.S. Bach on Erato (French) label... it's a 25 discs box issued in 1968 which won several Prizes and, WOW, it was recorded during a couple of years in churches in Sweden, Denmark and Germany... the ancient organs are flawlessly recorded with a very detailed and lively sound, very "churchie":-)))
Only caveat... the sound engineer sort-of "truncated" the sound halo at the end of every piece... a quite opinable, unwise choice, better, an annoying defect to me.
Anyway, a nice, NICE found and... sure THE thickest disc in my whole collection:-)
