This is an IMMACULATE looking EMI 4 LP Box Set. Unlike many of the typical ’70s mid-hall, vague, cold sounding EMIs that some audiophiles seem to like. these recordings have much more presence, as well as beautifully textured strings.
In fact the more I play this set the more I like it. Boult brings quite a bit of energy to these performances, especially considering his age at the time (he was in his 80s!).
