Why not suggest that Music Direct do this as one of their MoFi releases? They bought MoFi and are looking for suggestions for things to release and the medium (vinyl 150g, 180g, and Gold CD).

You suggested the Library before. Is it possible to do a search of all librarys in your state? You may also want to check College librarys, especially if they have Music degree programs. I'm not a lawyer, but how can you be breaking a law if you burn a CD for personal use of something unavailable for purchase? Must be someone with the equipment in your area to do it. Also pick up the phone and call all the used record stores in your area that have LPs.
I assume you are referring to the legendary recording with Schwartzkopf, Frick, and Hotter with the Philharmonia conducted by Sawallisch. A great performance and one of Walter Legge's best productions. It has been remastered on EMI and released in England. It is in stock at http://www.crotchet.co.uk. I order from them about once a month.
If you're not familiar with www.gemm.com you might want to try searching there. It's a database & link to many merchants and sellers of music. I just tried it and there were quite a few things that came up (prices varied), but I wasn't sure what I was looking at. So take your code numbers over there, and do a search for "Die Kluge" under title.
By the way...the more stars a merchant has, the more likely they'll actually have it in stock. Some of them don't have the items they claim to have. Good Luck.
