One of our good customers had this to say about some Hot Stampers he purchased recently:
Saturday morning 06.15 waking up, checking messages, news and of course your site. Actually a daily routine.
Finding there Rachmaninov 2. For so many, as for me, an astonishing work.
So once again excited. Then checking reviews on the performance (you just take it for granted what an amazing thing this internet is). Searching, finding and reading about this specific performance is fun, thrilling in a way and in the process you learn more about the composer and piece.
The reviews show the performance as a stand out; for some brusque and maybe too fast leaving out the drama, but for many an exhilarating benchmark.
Afterwords going back to the better-record site to read about the recording. What a great story about Wilkie and the Decca tree.
And then of course being able to actually buy that record. What a privilege!
A big big thank you. (more…)
