1 in stock


Offered for sale is a sealed copy of the 4 LP, 180 gram, 45 RPM Classic Records reissue of Bizet’s L’Arlesienne Suites Nos. 1 And 2, performed by the Royal Opera House Orchestra with Jean Morel conducting, originally issued in 1959 by RCA Records as LSC-2327.

About this copy: This copy of L’Arlesienne Suites Nos. 1 And 2 is a still sealed, 180 gram, 5 LP, 45 RPM limited edition reissue from Classic Records pressed approximately ten years ago.  The records were cut at 45 RPM speed and pressed as single sided discs for optimum sound quality.

Two of the five discs are in printed covers that duplicate the original RCA artwork.  The other three discs are in plain white covers.  The record labels duplicate the original RCA “shaded dog” artwork used on the original 1959 release. The records are still sealed and are believed to be unplayed and perfectly mint. The shrinkwrap is intact with no tears or rips.  This is a fairly early pressing; there is no mention of “Quiex”, “200 gram” or “Clarity” on the cover.

A beautiful copy of a set that is hard to find in sealed condition.

Background: 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.
