As many have mentioned, Mr Jacobs was not very happy about the Barenboim recording - enough said!
There is a recording that was released by the CSO, from a subscription concert in October, 1978 with Henry Mazer conducting. Don't even try getting this from the CSO - it is long gone. As far as a re-release, don't hold your breath, the idea was rejected by the Player's Committee (this is a long story). It looks like the Mazer recording will only be available like Greatful Dead recordings - only by bootlegging it.
There is talk of a tribute CD but this will not include the VW but will probably have the Strauss First Horn Concerto.
As far as the Flethcher recording, it's great - I like it better!
