NEW FILES AT FF!

From the Decca website:

In the 1960s Decca pioneered the use of a multi 10-channel console mixer which created recordings with an unprecedented sense of spatial realism and movement – Phase 4 Stereo. Following in the footsteps of Decca’s highly-successful label heritage sets (The Decca Sound, Mercury Living Presence), this generous selection of the very best of Phase 4 promises to amaze a new generation of fans.

Two of the titles included in the set are on the TAS List – the Holy Grail of vinyl fidelity. This is a list of recordings recommended by The Absolute Sound magazine under the direction of Harry Pearson. Those two titles are The Fantasy Film World of Bernard Herrmann and Miklós Rózsa: Music From Ben Hur.
