In my rambling I forgot to mention the Jim Svejda book, "The Insider's Guide to Classical Recordings". Svejda is the host of NPR's The Record Shelf. The majority of his picks are NAXOS recordings because they are affordable as well as top notch performances. Affordable is the keyword here! Svejda is also very knowledgable about the pieces and gives a good background/history of them as well. $24, but a very good read!
