Analogue Productions/Classic Records Reissue Series Presents 10 Everest Titles in Previously Unreleased 45RPM Versions Cut by Bernie Grundman  

Mastered Directly from the Original 35mm Magnetic Film Using "All Tube" Cutting System

Among Classic Records' many accomplishments was unlocking the audio majesty of the Everest 35mm magnetic film recordings in a groundbreaking reissue series. Everest LPs through the early-60s were recorded on 3-channel 35mm magnetic film recording equipment. 35mm magnetic film yielded greater fidelity and less noise than standard 1/4" recording tape. The Westrex Corporation built special equipment to Everest's specifications to accomplish these advantages. Classic Records by Analogue Productions resurrects this vintage audiophile collection with an initial 10-title reissue series. Bernie Grundman cut the Classic Records reissues at both 33 and 45 RPM but the 45 RPM versions have never been issued until now!

Looking and sounding exceptional, these 200g 45RPM editions are pressed with a flat-edge, no groove-guard flat profile by Quality Record Pressing like the beloved originals. The flat edge refers to the absence of a raised, beaded lip on the outer edge of the record, providing a flat playing surface - and no incline – on your turntable. Each 2LP-set comes with Stoughton Printing tip-on original packaging and an Everest Records branded jacket displaying photos of each reissue title. The two LPs are also presented in a protective clear sleeve.

The Little Train of the Caipira was inspired by a ride that Villa-Lobos took in 1931 on a train that was transporting berry-pickers and farm laborers between villages in the Brazilian province of Sao Paolo. Within an hour he had completed the last movement (toccata) and that very night he and his wife played the movement on cello and piano. Alberto Ginastera, Argentina's most celebrated composers, wrote Estancia, a one act Ballet in five movements, as a commissioned composition in 1941. It was not performed in ballet form, however, until 1952 in Buenos Aires. Panambi composed in 1936, and another ballet suite in five movements, is based on a South American Indian legend. Its primitive element is most spectacularly evident in the second movement which is scored for percussion and brass only and in the last movement "Dance of the Warriors" which works up to a tremendous final climax.

In 1960, David Hall, who wrote the original liner notes for this Everest 35mm recording had this to say about the Villa Lobos composition / Everest Recording: "In recent years, hi-fi fans have delighted in the realistic recordings of big steam locomotives and other railway sounds. For some, it is more thrilling to have a fast freight roaring through the living room than to hear the music of Beethoven or Tchaikovsky. Here, though, is a tailor made for both the audiophile and music lover. With Everest's startlingly lifelike sound, coupled with the vivid imagination of Villa-Lobos, you can hear a musical train come to life on your phonograph."
