...My brain hurts now.

On the other hand, I find it fascinating that they used the Karajan recording of the 5th Symphony. It was videotaped in 1966, and I thought it was no longer in print.

Which they, Walter Murphy? Might not have been out of print when he did his disco mix.

Besides, this mashup's pedigree is so inbred that the Karajan recording might have snuck in somewhere without Party Ben's knowledge.

(edit) Never mind, I see what you mean now. Uh, no idea. Maybe a library archive somewhere?
