Offered for sale is a sealed copy of the single LP, 200 Gram, Quiex SV-P vinyl Classic Records reissue of The Reiner Sound, performed by Fritz Reiner and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, originally issued in 1958 by RCA Records as LSC-2183.
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 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 a still sealed, 200 Gram, single LP, 33 1/3 pressing by Classic Records, pressed on Quiex SV-P vinyl. The artwork on the cover and label duplicate that of the original 1958 RCA release. The record is still sealed in the original loose factory bag, sealed by a Classic Records sticker. The record is new and presumably mint and unplayed.
A terrific copy of a great sounding record.
