    Excellent: Mehta on Decca, Dutoit on Decca
    Very good: Mackerras on Virgin
    Good: Karajan's several versions (in particular on Decca), Previn (Emi)
    Not so good: Previn on Telarc (unfortunately, the one I own :-( )...

    "André Previn & The London Symphony Orchestra - Holst - The Planets (2010 Vinyl LP)"
