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.
Not only does Rachmaninoff's "Rhapsody On A Theme Of Paganini" happen to be one of the most popular and successful pieces of music ever written for piano, this album also has the benefit of featuring Arthur Rubinstein on piano and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra with Fritz Reiner at the helm. Augmented by a very fine rendition of Manuel de Falla's "Nights In The Gardens Of Spain" with Enrique Jorda and the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra, it all adds up to form one of the best sounding LPs ever made!
Pressed at Quality Record Pressings and plated by Gary Salstrom. Packaged in the original tip-on jacket facsimiles that precisely duplicate the original cover art, including the "Living Stereo" logo, LSC numbers and "Shaded Dog" label. These reissues are designed from the mastering, to the cutting, to the pressing and packaging to be the finest RCA Living Stereo LPs ever reissued. These new versions are clearer than the originals and warmer and richer than past reissues!
