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.
Fritz Reiner conducts the Chicago Symphony Orchestra in rich performances of Claude Debussy’s “Iberia” from his orchestral composition Images Pour Orchestre as well as Maurice Ravel’s waltz suite “Valses Nobles Et Semtimentales” and “Alborado Del Gracioso” from his Miroirs suite, a program that ultimately results in the “perfect” synthesis of interpretation, playing and sound!
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 new versions are clearer than the originals and warmer and richer than past reissues! Hybrid Stereo SACD playable on all CD players.
