Remastered from the Original Master Tape and Cut at 45 RPM by Ryan Smith at Sterling Sound

RCA's "golden age" was more like a "golden minute" - in a scant period, roughly from 1958 to 1963, the beginning of the stereo era - pure vacuum tube amplification helped produce recordings demonstrating unparalleled fidelity and warmth, lifelike presence and midband illumination. A highly sought-after RCA shaded dog Living Stereo title, the performance and sonics found within rate a 10/10. A must have - the dynamics are monstrous! Whichever other Respighi tone poem recordings you ultimately purchase, you must own this celebrated warhorse from Fritz Reiner and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. Since the early ‘60s it has been the standard by which all others have been judged, and in terms of both sound and performance, it has never really been surpassed. The final march of Pines is simply incredible: thundering bass drum, crashing cymbals and gongs, bellowing brass - nobody since has brought the whole thing off with the same combination of excitement and discipline!

"These are the best vinyl releases of RCA LPs I've yet heard." - Jonathan Valin / Executive Editor, The Absolute Sound
