WONDERFUL MUSIC AND SOUND ON SIDE ONE, plus quiet vinyl! This copy gives you precisely the right balance of clarity and sweetness we were looking for in the sound of the violin. Beyond that, the orchestra also sounds amazing here — so RICH and FULL-BODIED. We found the sound of this side one Hard To Fault and I bet you will too. In fact, I guarantee it — or your money back! This record puts most of the TAS Super Discs to shame, and it’s on a budget reissue label. Hey Harry, how about them apples!? 

Side two is decent but a bit too dark. The best music is on side one, so it’s not a huge loss. It’ll also show you just how exceptional this side one is! (more…)

This is a rare and very nice looking Capitol LP with Very Little Sign of Play (VLSOP). The violin sounds rich and sweet, although the orchestral sound is a bit old school. (more…)
