Every Label Made Mediocre Records – London Released This One in 1963

More of the music of Franz Schubert (1797-1828)

More of the music of Antonin Dvorak (1841-1904)

The copy we auditioned was opaque and veiled, much like the Heavy Vinyl reissues that are flooding the market these days. Definitely not our sound.

Looking for pressings with audiophile quality sound and mostly quiet surfaces?

These Decca/London recordings are currently available on our site.

As far as we can tell, based on this single copy, CS 6357 is not an album worthy of a Hot Stamper shootout.

We certainly can’t say that there aren’t good sounding pressings of the album though. If we hear a better one down the road, we would certainly be open to the possibility of doing a shootout and offering the best copies to our customers.

Perhaps you have one you like. If so, please let us know. You can email me at tom@better-records.com

We play mediocre-to-bad sounding pressings so that you don’t have to, a public service from your record loving friends at Better Records.
