Sonic Fireworks were recordings (direct-to-disc) made in 1979 by the audiophile super-label Crystal Clear from USA. They made a couple of excellent records, mostly direct-to-disc and in strong limited quantity. The target was: to be the best, to be the Number One. Today the records are very scarse and very hard to find.

The recordings have a great purity and a very deep bass that can reach 20 Hertz, so PLEASE, take care of your HiFi-equipement, expecially of your louspeakers.

  1. Ciao Marika…ora tutti i link funzionano. Torna di nuovo a visitarci tra qualche giorno, troverai altri due super-dischi di musica d’organo che faranno scomparire questi due. Anch’essi in 96K24B 🙂

  2. Thank you very much for this (and for all the rest super vinyl rips) May I just ask: what kind of music is being performed in this disc? Religious? Medieval perhaps? By what composer(s)? Do we know any of the titles?

  3. Dear Rach, can’t wait to listen to thes sonic fireworks on my hifi equipment.
    Keep sharing these gems for the benefit of mankind!
    Thank you again (and again…)

  4. Thank u so much for re-ripping this set by using the new preamp. I do have some trouble when listen the old one, the sound goes to “blur” and lost the hi-fidelity. Same trouble also happens on the Argerich-Abaddo LP boxsets, in particular the Ravel’s PC. What a pity!
    HOWEVER, now I have the new files you posted this week, and after I carefully listen I can say, they are 100% pure and hi-fidelity! I’m very very glad about this.
    Thank you again for your great works!

      • He already has, on multiple occasions. In the case of the Argerich/Abbado box, the specific passages he refers to are bad on the album itself. A rerip will produce the same results.

        Sorry to post about this here, Alf. Back to your regularly scheduled comments.. 🙂

        • Thank you both, anyway, for attention on this matter. Though, it is sad to know the problem is due to the LP itself. For almost all the other re-released Universal Vinyl records, like DG, DECCA, ARCHIV… your rips are very very good, the only problem is the Argerich/Abbado…
          I still hope one day, I can hear the perfect sound of the Ravel’s PC by Argerich/Abbado, this LP is really hard to find…
