"And now... for something completely different..."

Mantovani - Collector's Volume 1

Had to have this for "The Valiant Years" theme. Had that on a 45 when I was kid. Watched the TV show with my father.

Don't laugh, but I just received this High Definition Tape Transfer 192/24 DVD~A stereo disc from the earliest days of Stereo and it really sounds magnificent and the performances are lovely. Too bad HDTT stopped releasing in the DVD~A format!

Wow great find! (y)

" ...recorded in 1959 right in the heart of the Golden Age of stereo it has that wide, deep soundstage which these era recordings are known for, and believe me, it has that beautiful lush analog sonics in full force the sound will wash over you..."

I couldn't have said it better! I'll add that the CDDA version has that sound to it. Great mastering, and full stereo greatness of the "The Valiant Years" theme which I had thought I would never hear this way.

Kamal SILHOUETTE [Nightingale Records] former classical guitarist Kamal creates a lovely new age soundscape recorded in DDD and pressed in West Germany so you know it's not compressed

The Robert Hohner Percussion Ensemble World Music Tour [Digital Music Products] How could I allow this MAGNIFICENT Circle Surround encoded disc to lurk in the piles for so long..unplayed? Decoded in PLXII, the soundstage is wide and deep and offers ample surround reinforcement and the musicianship is astounding. They even do a version of Tito Puente's OYE COMO VA which gives Santana's version a run for its money. HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION. A HOME RUN!
