This album needs no introduction to the music lovers and audiophiles who will be bidding here.
Suffice it to say that it is one of a handful of very well-respected records that came out of the high-end audiophile launch in the U.S. during the early to late '70s. Fact is, to say Mr. Levinson is among that elite corps is to misunderstand that, in fact, he led the way. From setting up the mics right on through to pressing this record, every level of care was taken. The result, in your living room, will quite astound you. (Just be sure to get the volume right, please, not hesitating at all to achieve in-your-room performance size.)
This edition features Lois Shapiro on a Mark Allen Grand Piano playing music of Haydn and Ravel, with resulting sound that replaces your listening room with Miss Shapiro’s acoustic of the moment.
And, yes, this stellar copy is from the very first Levinson issues on LP, back when Mark was trying to decide if he would press records at all. Fact is, these Blue Labels only showed up at Levinson dealers, of which I was one.
A rare original, the blue label volume 2, here in its plain white cover, platter within will play near mint.
Not to be missed, this is a treasure of vinyl literature.
