A sealed copy of Also Sprach Zarathustra by Reiner and the Chicago Symphony, pressed by Classic Records on four 45 RPM discs
Offered for sale is a sealed copy of the Classic Records reissue of Also Sprach Zarathustra, by Fritz Reiner and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, pressed on 4 single-sided, 45 RPM, 180 gram discs, originally released in 1960 by RCA as LSC-1806.
Classic Records earned a solid reputation by reissuing long-out-of-print and highly sought out classical titles originally released by RCA in the late 1950s and early 1960s. These pressings offered great dynamics and wide, impressive soundstages. Unfortunately, they also sold in limited numbers when new and finding mint used copies has become quite difficult. Classic Records began reissuing many of these titles in the mid 1990s, first as 180 gram 33 1/3 LPs, and later as limited edition pressings cut at 45 RPM on multiple, single-sided discs for optimum sound quality. Some of these titles were pressed multiple times at different weights and types of vinyl. Later pressings note Quiex SV, Quiex SV-P, Clarity Vinyl or 200 Gram vinyl on the jackets. Earlier, 180 gram pressings omit this.
The copy offered for sale is a still sealed 4 LP reissue by Classic Records, pressed on 180 gram vinyl using 4 single sided discs and cut at 45 RPM for optimum sound quality. This is an early pressing; each of the discs is sealed separately and packaged in a printed cover with a sticker indicating which of the four discs is contained inside. There is no mention of “Quiex, 200 Gram, or Clarity” on the cover. The discs are still sealed and are believed to be perfectly mint and unplayed. The covers duplicate the original cover art and the labels duplicate the original RCA “shaded dog” labels.
A great copy of a highly sought out and legendary classical title.
