180 Gram Vinyl Record
180-gram Audiophile Vinyl Cut from the Original Analogue EMI Master Tapes at Abbey Road Studios!
Emanating from Los Romeros (the guitar quartet of father and three sons), Angel, along with his brother Pepe, forged distinguished solo careers and both recorded this popular concerto, Angel contributing to another sonic gem from the golden era of Andre Previn’s reign at the London Symphony Orchestra.
"...the new HMV record certainly deserves a most enthusiastic welcome and will disappoint no one... the colour of the orchestral backcloth is most appealing... The performance has great romantic warmth, the slow movement is particularly beautiful (the phrasing of the opening orchestral statement has a beguiling simplicity) and Angel Romero cannot but respond. He is an excellent player..." Ivan March, GRAMOPHONE, December 1977
Cut at Abbey Road Studios from the original stereo analogue master tapes with the Neumann VMS80 lathe fed an analogue pre-cut signal from a specially adapted Studer A80 tape deck with additional playback head. Pressed on 180-gram vinyl to audiophile standards.
