Spain has been an audiophile favorite for a very long time. Everybody should know it by now, what with both Chesky and Classic Records having remastered it in the ’90s, dismally of course, as neither of these companies showed the slightest sense that they understood how lackluster, if not downright awful, the resulting products of their efforts turned out to be.
No doubt Analogue Productions will see fit to ruin the recording the way they ruined Scheherazade.
This has never been one of the best Living Stereo titles in our experience. The highest grade I would give it would probably be a B.
“Our experience” is the key phrase in the above sentence. I can’t say there aren’t amazing sounding pressings of the album, it’s simply the case that we have never played one.
If I saw one for cheap I would of course pick it up, but in the modern world of records, that is very unlikely indeed.
