Sonic Grade: Unknown
In the late ’90s we described the sound of this pressing this way:
“Outstanding Rachmaninoff, dark and rich. Highly recommended.”
Since we have not played a copy of the album in over ten years, we have taken down our previous Sonic Grade of B as we have no idea how the record would fare today on our much-improved system.
For all we know it’s been recut, which is another problem with our old reviews of records we used to like: the new version could have very different sound from the one we played (and that’s not even taking into account the pressing variability, which we all know is sometimes huge).
