A distinguished member of the Better Records Orchestral Music Hall of Fame.


If you like records that are ALIVE, with music that JUMPS out of the speakers, this LP is for you. You will have a hard time finding a better sounding record.

The first 10 seconds of side one is all you need to hear to know you are in the presence of LIVING STEREO SOUND AT ITS BEST.

The music of Gilbert and Sullivan belongs in any serious classical collection. This is without a doubt the best way to get the most Gilbert and Sullivan music with the best sound. And no singing.

If you don’t have a good record of Gilbert and Sullivan’s Overtures, you are really missing out. This is some of the most wonderful music ever composed. It’s the kind of music that will immediately put you in a good mood. Here the Overtures are played to perfection.

For music and sound, this one gets a Top Recommendation.

As the liner notes on the back say, “…immense charm, good-natured energy and the ‘rightness’ that announces the influence of a superb musical command.”.
