Analogue Productions - CAPC 2150 SA - Hybrid SACD Multichannel 

Mastered By Ryan Smith at Sterling Sound - RCA LSC-2150

Limited Edition - Plays on All CD Players 

RCA Living Stereo — the gold standard for top quality orchestral performance and sound!

The JVC XRCD version gets most of it right except the sonic spectrum is so dramatically skewed to the high frequencies that the loud brass instruments sometime sound too penetrating. Prokofiev's transparent orchestration does emphasize the highs, but on this Analogue Productions SACD it all sounds subtly more recessed and perfectly natural because of the increased open airiness." — Arthur Lintgen, The Absolute Sound, January 2015
 
"...I'd have to say that the usual stumbling blocks have been sidestepped. Great care has been taken to do the right things, starting with the way the decision to remaster these RCAs was made." - Jonathan Valin, The Absolute Sound

but if you want the very best incarnation of these amazing, remarkable and classic recordings, you’re going to have to bite the bullet. Very highly recommended! 5/5 AudiophileAudition
 
One of the most sought-after Living Stereos and deservedly so, especially for the "Song of the Nightingale" which is one of Mohr and Layton's finest efforts.
 
The sound is truly wonderful on the Stravinsky too.
 
The original 3-track session tapes were used in mastering for this LP in the Analogue Productions reissue series.
