Alexander Gibson - Witches' Brew - New Symphony Orchestra Of London on Limited Edition 200g LP from Analogue Productions
Remastered from the Original Analog Tapes by Willem Makkee
This famous Alexander Gibson/New Symphony Orchestra of London recording from 1958 debuted at the dawn of the RCA Living Stereo era. It became one of the most sought-after Living Stereos with music by Arnold, Mussorgsky, Saint-Saëns, Humperdinck and Liszt, all with spooky, witchy themes. The performances remain as charismatic and incisive today as they were over half a century ago.
Now Witches' Brew gets the full Analogue Productions reissue treatment, featuring a remaster by Germany's Willem Makkee from the original analog tapes, and plating and a 200-gram vinyl pressing by Quality Record Pressings. Topping it off is a thick cardboard Stoughton Printing tip-on jacket.
If such music didn't cast the right sort of spell, so many listeners wouldn't be returning to it on so many occasions, somehow feeling constantly refreshed!
