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.

Audiophile HD-Vinyls 24/96 (Decca) Arrigo Boito – Mefistofele (Pavarotti/Ghiaurov/Freni/Caballé)

front_small_boxset
Yes, most of the major roles were taken by singers who at the time must count as “experienced”, but there is plenty of youthful vigor in the singing as well.

Phantastic sound and stellar performances…and this is the reason, why I offer this jewel in 24/96 although it is a digital production.
