I own the Nikolayeva Melodiya and it is about an inch thick  Smiley, it is clean and well preserved but still sounds pretty crappy--same sound as the one on youtube. I had a request in to a Moscow record seller for several years before I got it. I would like to hear it in a modern clean version because in spite of my obsession to get it, I have never really enjoyed it all that much. I don't think it is necessarily a barn-burner, but I am glad to have it just as homage to Madame Nikolayeva. There are some youtubes of her playing, and the Tchaikovsky No. 1 by her was glorious for me--watching her make such big beautiful sounds with her little fingers and her beautiful smile charmed me! In some thread someone brought to our attention that you could look up composers by country on classical-online.ru, and I went through the Russian and some former soviet union countries and actually found a few concertos by composers I had never heard of before such as Igor Yakushenko, Alexsei Nikolaev, Victor Miniotas--'twas fun.

is that one a 78?  made from Shellac?
