Good sounding Deutsche Grammophon recordings

We have a pretty big classical CD collection and many are Deutsche Grammophon. Many of these recordings don't sound that great and I have to say that some of the Deutsche Grammophon vinyl we have is average sounding. But the performances are usually top notch. After upgrading my cartridge to an Audio Note iQ3 I took a chance on some mid 60's Herbert Von Karajan/Berlin Philharmonic vinyl from Ebay. I thought I would share some of the outstanding finds I came across.

Brahms four symphonies-outstanding sound and amazing playing. These symphonies can sound thick and muddy. Not here.
Brahms Violin Concerto- Christian Ferras violin.
Beethoven Violin Concerto- Christian Ferras violin -Simply amazing sound.

Karl Bohm and the Berlin Philharmonic Schubert 5th Symphony. Elegant interpretation and excellent sound. I think from the 60's

A live performance of Beethoven's Piano Concerto no1. from 1979 Carlo Maria Giulini conducting the Vienna Philharmonic- Sonically amazing.

I found most of these less than $15 and mint minus ratings- not bad :)
Czarivey, as it happens I picked up Karajan/Beethoven Symp 1 and 2 from the 1962 cycle today and I agree with you. 1 and 2 have the fancy crown and the silver "stereo" label in the center and it does not sound nearly as good as no 3,5, and 7 which has the red "stereo" label over on the right hand side. Thanks so much for this tip.
Can someone clarify "red stereo label"? Looking at my DGs the older ones (but not yet tulip) have the silver Stereo word in the center. Most others have red printing for more than the word Stereo. I don't own any with only the word Stereo in red.
OK...have a good time reading.....
Thanks Prcinka, I was looking at record labels, not jackets. Now I'll need to look again.
Prcinka referred to phase reversal in the first response to this thread; but it was never followed up. With use of an absolute phase switch I have found DG records to be generally very good, certainly above average. Being able to listen to a record (or CD/DVD) in normal and reverse phase allows one to select which setting provides more clarity,nuance,dynamics and a deeper view into the soundstage. I think many of the negative comments would disappear if the listeners had the chance to choose the setting they prefer.
