  • This Copland masterpiece makes its Hot Stamper debut with STUNNING Shootout Winning Triple Plus (A+++) sound throughout – exceptionally quiet vinyl too
  • This spectacular Demo Disc recording is big, clear, rich, dynamic, transparent and energetic – HERE is the sound we love
  • “To the ultimate delight of audiences Copland managed to weave musical complexity with popular style.”

This vintage Turnabout pressing has the kind of Tubey Magical Midrange that modern records can barely BEGIN to reproduce. Folks, that sound is gone and it sure isn’t showing signs of coming back. If you love hearing INTO a recording, actually being able to “see” the performers, and feeling as if you are sitting in the studio with the band, this is the record for you. It’s what vintage all analog recordings are known for —this sound. (more…)

  • You’ll find STUNNING Shootout Winning Triple Plus (A+++) sound on this famous TAS List orchestral spectacular (with some condition issues)
  • It’s an extraordinary recording, and so amazing on this pressing that after playing it, you may agree with us that few other classical Demo Discs are in its league
  • The bottom end of this record is powerful and solid like no other classical LP we’ve played in a very long time – this is the way to record tympani!
  • On a pressing this good, the sound is dynamic, lively and BIG – jumping out of the speakers and bringing not only the power but the vibrant colors of the symphony right into your listening room

A Hall of Shame 3 Record set that had us asking: Why would anyone want to own this awful set?

TAS List or no TAS List, the performances are much too slow to be taken seriously. (more…)
