"Every performance that ever existed on an LP is available
on a CD in
a superior recording"

I do not know what you have been looking at, but every LP is
not available on CD. We have over 3000 LP's in our collection because they
have never been transferred to CD. In some case, yes we could find a
version of a piece on a CD, but not by the same performer. Our music
professors want a certain performance of Aida, not just a performance of
Aida. Personally, as a big fan of the Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem, only
about half their albums are available on CD.
