"This legendary record was issued as part of a package with another LP entitled "The Power of the Organ. While that LP has faded into obscurity, the former has been a sensation since it was released in 1963 as part of RCA Victor's Living Stereo classical series. Although it bears the famous "Nipper" logo, this is actually a Decca production produced for RCA by Charles Gerhardt, and engineered by Kenneth Wilkinson, who is the man behind the sound of the top rated Decca recordings. Perhaps because it "Power of the Orchestra" was issued only as part of this special package, it didn't remain in print for very long.

If you are a fan of Moussorgsky-Ravel's "Pictures at an Exhibition" or "Night on Bald Mountain" you simply shouldn't be without this record! It's virtues have placed it in HP's "Top 12 Best Sounding LPs of All Time", as well as earning a 10+ from J. Mitchell, author of "The RCA Bible". Does it live up to all the hype? Yes, and then some!" - Scott Wilson/Listening Notes.

This is an RCA "Shaded Dog" Living Stereo recording from 1963 with 7S/5S Stampers.

The RCA "Dogs" are considered to be of true Audiophile quality. This recording is no exception.

An astounding LP! This original blows away the Chesky re-make completely and it is one of the cleanest pressings I've heard of this LP in a long while! The sound is open, dynamic, powerfull and spatial. It has the detail, tonal qualities and and dynamic range found more typically on the best Mercury "Living Presence" recordings.
The soundstage is immense - very wide and very deep. The instrumental details are incredible - Brass has "bite", Strings are sweet, Bass is deep and the high's are transparent - all with "air" and presence about them.
This is truely an awesome pressing - one that you are not likely to find again for quite some time.
While somewhat lacking the Bass extension of the 1S/7S pressing, this one has much more micro-detail and deeper and wider soundstage.
Surface noise consists mainly of low-level 'crackles' which, while audible on quiet passages, is 'outside' the Music and does not detract much at all. Of course, this will vary from system to system.

The Goldmine Record Value Guide currently lists this recording's value at $300.00+ - you can own it for significantly less.

Each record is washed on a VPI cleaning machine using a proprietary 3-5 agent process which is determined by the needs of the individual record. Each record is then listened to 100% to insure that the posted description is exactly what you can expect to get.
