Analogue Productions (RCA Living Stereo)
CAPC 2183 SA
Hybrid 3-Channel Stereo SACD
RCA Living Stereo — the gold standard for top quality orchestral performance and sound!
Remastered from the original master tape by Ryan Smith at Sterling Sound
"Between the Classic Records and Analogue Productions reissues I have, the Classic Records version has EQ that emphasizes the bass frequencies for colossal bass trombones you feel as much as hear, while the Analogue Productions version sounds more neutral and emphasizes the woodwinds and the idiosyncratic textures that come from reeds made by the players themselves, so that no two are truly alike. Overall I prefer the Analogue Productions version as it fully preserves the dramatic stereo imaging of the era when records tried to capture the space the orchestra performed in as well as the orchestra itself."

Yet another giant of the Living Stereo series. The Isle Of The Dead is a truly awesome orchestral spectacular with dynamic peaks that will stun most listeners. Also included is the equally stirring version of Rhapsodie Espagnole.
