I posted the following as part of my new Accession review:

I played Holst’s Planets (HMV (EMI), Andre Previn, LSO). I know or at least I thought I knew this LP very well. When I finally got out of my chair i felt many emotions. Mars was not just menacing it was violent, I was beaten up, other passages gave me some TLC and nursed me with sweet soothing mids and highs. I went through a cold sweat, twice. Bass hit me in the chest a few times. Brass blare is so natural. I have never heard this LP or any other LP affect me this way. Incredible!

What other Planets recordings should i look for? I have never been an Andre Previn fan (until today i thought his music sort of "plods along") so which other conductors should i look for whose interpretation is even more powerful?

Classical interpretations are hard to recommend because what appeals to one person might not to another, but here goes . . . LOL

In no particular order - 

Steinberg/Boston SO on DG
Boult/LPO on EMI
Mehta/Los Angles PO on Decca
Karajan/Vienna PO on Decca

My favourite Planets never made in to vinyl -
Handley/RPO on Tring (or the RPO's own CD label). This is a fabulous recording.
