You want to own a recording of a particular piece of music. _All_ the
recordings available of that work delete _all_ the repeats. Do you go
ahead and buy one of them, or do you do without?
You want to own a recording of a particular piece of music. All the
recordings _except one_ delete all the repeats, but the entire range
of critical opinion is agreed that the one recording that includes the
repeat is a travesty of the work in every other instance - sound, playing,
interpretation, recording. Do you go ahead and buy the turkey? Do you buy
one of the others without the repeats? Or do you do without?
