Remastered by Ryan Smith at Sterling Sound in New York
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.
Spain includes Fritz Reiner and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra’s performances of Granados’ “Goyescas,” Falla’s“Dance from the Three-Cornered Hat” and “La Vida Breve” and Albeniz’s “Navarra,” “Fete-Dieu A Seville” and “Triana” from Iberia. Transcribed for Orchestra by Arbos. Great performances and sensational sonics…woofers beware!
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! Multi-channel/Stereo SACD playable on all CD players.
