Offered for sale is an early stereo pressing of The Reiner Sound, by Fritz Reiner and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, released in 1958 by RCA Records as LSC-2183.
The Reiner Sound has long been sought out by audiophiles for its dynamics and wide soundstage. Works on the LP are Ravel’s Rapsodie Espagnole, Pavan for a Dead Princess and Rachmaninoff’s Isle of the Dead.
The copy offered for sale is much nicer than most of the copies we see; the disc has clearly had very little play. The disc is VG++, with just a few light scuffs from the heavy paper sleeve included with the original release. The disc features 10S stampers on both sides.
The cover is VG+, with a repaired 4″ seam split at the top.
A very clean copy of a great-sounding record that’s hard to find in playable condition.
