Offered for sale is a sealed copy of the 4 LP, 180 gram, 45 RPM Classic Records reissue of Prokofieff’s Symphony #7 and Overture Russe, by Jean Martinon and the Paris Conservatorie Orchestra, originally issued in 1959 by RCA Records as LSC-2288.
About this copy: The record offered for sale is a sealed, limited edition reissue of Prokofieff’s Symphony #7 and Overture Russe, by Jean Martinon and the Paris Conservatorie Orchestra, originally issued in 1959 by RCA Records as LSC-2288. This was pressed by Classic Records approximately ten years ago on 4 single-sided, 180 gram, 45 RPM discs for optimum sound quality. This is an early pressing; each of the four records is packaged in a printed cover that duplicates the original RCA cover. The disc labels should also duplicate the original RCA “shaded dog” labels that RCA used at the time of the album’s original release. The LPs are sealed and are believed to be perfectly mint and unplayed.
There is an 8″ split in the shrink wrap at the bottom. A beautiful copy of a pressing that is hard to find in this 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.
