Hi - I have had quite a lot of Savall on vinyl, and frankly I think the Astree lp's are overrated. I have kept very few Astree of any artist. The Savall that I enjoy most is the Hesperion XX on EMI, but also his albums on Telefunken in the "Musique Francaise - Pieces de viole" series (which are actually German issues of the Astree recordings). I keep very few Telefunkens also, but I've found the Savall series to be very good - and I have NO idea why I prefer them to the Astree, but I do. There's something about the Astree sound that bothers me - maybe some kind of phase issue, not sure - but they bother me.
Four Telefunkens I spot on the shelf here are:
Pieces de viole - Louis de Caix D,Hervelois 1708 & 1731
Pieces de viole - Le Sieur de Machy 1685 (solo viola da gamba!)
Pieces de viole - Marin Marais Vol. 1
Pieces de viole - Marin Marais Vol. 2
These definitely catch a bid, but are more reasonable than the Astree or EMI's. Also, I've found the Hesperion XX EMI issues to be quite nice in CD format, and I'm not at all a fan of digital - but I wouldn't feel compelled to hunt down the vinyl if I already had the EMI CD's.
A Savall discography can be found here - a very good website if you're into Early music: www.medieval
Now..... If you like the Savall sound, and want to get into even earlier music, I'd VERY highly recommend ALL of the Studio der Fruhen Musik led by Thomas Binkley on the EMI Reflexe label. It's absolutely divine. Binkley is scholar and a great player, but he also clearly has a spiritual connection to early music that defies description. You'll hear it though. Binkley is a genius of interpretive subtlety. The EMI Reflexe lp's are consistently GREAT sonically. They do not go for huge $$$, as they are under the radar of Asian collectors (for now).
WARNING - There are also a number of Studio der Fruhen Musik on Telefunken, but they are much more Hit or Miss (and mostly Miss) sonically.
