One of the most amazing recording Szell ever made is of the Tchaikovsky 4th with the LSO. As it's a Decca recording it's not in the box.
Another is his Dvorak Cello Concerto with Pierre Fournier and the Berlin Phil.

Re: Water, water everywhere, nor any drop to drink

40% of the world's fresh water lies in the Great Lakes. But, in my view, we made a big mistake when we built the St Lawrence Seaway, which has allowed non-native salt water species to invade the Great Lakes and destroy most of the native stocks of fresh water fish. Its a shame.
