The results are a dazzling example of what vinyl still has to offer, if prepared with care that mass-produced records do not receive. The sound defines vividness, with an undistorted dynamic range and pin-point accuracy of the orchestral instruments’ locations. Long considered one of the best recordings (among many) turned out by London (actually British Decca), this pair of 45rpm discs was an ear opener. Exciting and involving, ORG has produced a must-have for anyone who possesses audiophile level equipment." - Zan Furtwangler, .audaud.

Peter Maag conducts the London Symphony Orchestra for Mendelssohn's Symphony No. 3 known as "Scotch" or the "Scottish Symphony."

The very first London "Blueback" probably engineered by the great K.E. Wilkinson in London's superb sounding Kingsway Hall combines stunning sonics with an accessible, lyrical musical program. Mendelsohn wrote the Overture opus. 21 in 1826 when he was but 17 years old. The remainder was written almost two decades later, commissioned by Prussian King Frederick William IV as accompaniment to an 1843 performance of the play.

Peter Maag conducts a delightfully fresh "Scottish" Symphony, keeping tempos moderately brisk, textures lean, and phrasing intuitive - that is, everything flows easily and logically. ...Decca's 1960 recording of the symphony is full and clear with plenty of depth"

Fortunately this accessible, tuneful piece of music is made that much more thrilling thanks to the spectacular, if somewhat bright recording (the microphones used had a boost). But don't let that quibble stop you because otherwise this is a "you are there" recording featuring spectacular soundstaging and image depth. "Holographic" would not be hyperbole in decribing the image solidity. But more importantly, the instrumental harmonics are mostly life-like—especially the woodwinds and brass. It's difficult to believe this was recorded fifty years ago. With original Bluebacks averaging $40 online this double 45rpm edition pressed on dead quiet vinyl is not as expensive as it might at first seem. Sound 10/10 Micheal Fremmer Streophile
