R.I.P. SPEARO MY FRIEND, I WILL NEVER FORGET YOU!

Analogue Productions has taken a classic and shaped it to make the premier reissue of this already illustrious LP. Ryan Smith at Sterling Sound mastered this album from the original analog tapes. The lacquer cuts were plated and pressed by Quality Record Pressings. The Stoughton Printing old-style tip-on gatefold jacket has been upgraded handsomely by a series of rarely seen photos of Walter from the Sony Music Archives. Everything on this reissue shows quality. Released as 45rpm version as well one can argue this is the best possible version to get . A highly collectable and highly sonical “MUST Have” for the classic music lover.

Moussorgsky ‎– A Night On Bare Mountain · Pictures At An Exhibition (2009) {Analogue Productions; 2Lp, 180g, 45rpm, Remastered; 24-96} + 16-44

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

R.I.P. SPEARO MY FRIEND, I WILL NEVER FORGET YOU!

 

Recorded at Kingsway Hall and engineered by Kenneth Wilkinson, this record couples Moussorgsky’s Pictures At An Exhibition with Night On Bare Mountain. It has long been considered among the greatest sounding records ever made. Perhaps most stunning about Power of the Orchestra are the effortless dynamics, which have been reviewed and raved about ever since the first RCA shaded dog. From the teeny, tiny, itsy, bitsy gentle plucks of strings to the WHAM!! CRASH!! SLAM!! of a full orchestra without a bit of notice. It’s heart-stopping, jump-out-of-your-seat-type dynamics. The Power of the Orchestra – a more appropriate title there never was. But to hear it at 45 RPM…Oh! My! God! This thing’s got all the weight of an anchor but at the same time the clarity and airiness and sparkle of a feather. Nuance, a holographic soundstage, emotion to spare – this one’s got it all. A true reference. Power, indeed.
