Mono Audiophile: Complete Vaughan Williams LP Collection, 1950s, London UK Pressings!!!
Boult recorded his Vaughan Williams cycle for London/Decca during the 1950s before doing the Stereo for EMI during the late 1960’s. There are some who prefer the performances of the London cycle, so if you are a Vaughan Williams enthusiast, and/or a Mono nut, then you should seriously consider this set. This covers Symphonies 1 through 7, plus Job (Boult did a Stereo of #8, but never a #9, as it wasn’t written yet). Symphony #1 is the 2 LP box set edition, with side 4 containing the complete Wasps incidental music. The recordings are magnificent, and these are the UK London pressings. Several of these are quite difficult to locate, so to have the whole group here is a real find. There are 8 titles and 9 LPs.
Condition of the vinyl overall is Near Mint, with several minor exceptions; Jackets, both front and back are fairly clean and bright; there are some split seams, which is normal for something that came out over 50 years ago. I will pack these very carefully, and they will arrive in the same condition they are in now.
