RCA Living Stereo the gold standard for top quality orchestral performance and sound
RCA's "golden age" was more like a "golden minute" - in a scant period, roughly from 1958 to 1963, the beginning of the stereo era - pure Valve amplification helped produce recordings demonstrating unparalleled fidelity and warmth, lifelike presence and midband illumination.
Yet another giant of the Living Stereo series featuring the unparalleled pairing of Fritz Reiner and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra.
The Isle Of The Dead is a truly awesome orchestral spectacular with dynamic peaks that will stun most listeners. Also included is the equally stirring version of Rhapsodie Espagnole.
Packaged in the original tip-on jacket facsimiles that precisely duplicate the original cover art, including the "Living Stereo", LSC numbers and "Shaded Dog" label.
These new versions are clearer than the originals and warmer and richer than past reissues!
