As a former Jacobs student, I actually have to agree with you about the Fletcher recording being better than Mr. Jacobs'. Brian Fredricksen can tell you more about this, but I seem to remember (I was studying with Mr. Jacobs at the time)that the take they put on that DDG recording was what Mr. Jacobs thought was the dress rehearsal, and was a little rough. He was not happy with it! A recent posting on the TubaEuph list hints that there is a bootleg recording somewhere of Mr. Jacobs' actual performance with the CSO on a subscription concert (October 1978, if I remember right. Boy, does THAT date me!)
