This thread is for items available for purchase that you're salivating over, but for some reason have yet to pull the trigger. Maybe the price is daunting; maybe you're not sure you *really* need to add it to your collection; maybe you're hoping some wise and considerate person will buy it for you as a gift. Whatever the case, it's on your wish list, until (hopefully) someday it finds its way to the Latest Purchases thread.

Of course, for those of you with no impulse control whatsoever (you know who you are), this thread does not apply.

Here are some of the top items on my current list:

I have that Debussy set. It is worth it. It think it's the one to go, along with the Gieseking recordings.
