Audiophile HD-Vinyls 24/192 & 16/44 (Tacet) Maurice Ravel – oreloB (Bolero & La Valse)

front-small-boxsetThis is a crazy “thing” I tell you…I never saw this before. Normally you start listening a record positioning the needle at the beginning, in the outer dead wax. Here you start the record positioning the needle in the inner dead wax 😀 As stated on the cover, you play this Ravel backwards.
Much more than just a gimmick, this album boasts outstanding sound quality and stellar performances. See the information from the label below for more details on the production. (Many thanks to TheNightOwl, who allows me to use his text)
