Gershwin / Concerto in F / Boston Pops (LSC 2586)

Classic Records Debunked

Sonic Grade: C-

I must admit Classic did a passable job with this one. The two things that separate the good originals from the reissue are in some ways related. Classic, as is their wont, boosted the upper midrange, and that, coupled with their transistory mastering equipment, makes the strings brighter, grainier and yet somehow lacking in texture and sheen compared to the originals (a clear sign of a low-res cutting chain). Once you recognize that quality in the sound of a record it's hard to ignore, and I hear it on every Classic Record I play.

Product Detail

RCA is more famous for its string tone than anything else. If the strings on the Classic Records LPs don't bother you, you can save yourself a lot of money by not buying authentic RCA pressings -- and get quieter vinyl to boot.
