TEN TROMBONES LIKE TWO PIANOS by Pete Rugolo.

Circa 1960 -- an early Mercury Living Presence recording.

A little hissy and abit heavy on reverb and kinda poppy Ping Pong stereo but good fun
with great jazz players . . . including composer John Williams on piano.

. . . of course it does help that I'm a bass trombone player.

One of Henry Mancini's imaginative and colourful film scores, The Pink Panther stands up well on repeated listening. RCA Victor Stereo LP LSP-2795

Peter Sellers wrote some fun program notes on the album's back cover. Here's a sample:
Quote:


A lot of (Mancini's) music has been issued in the form of long-playing records. The great advantage of this is that you can sit and listen to Hank's score without having to sit through the film

Anyway, this album is a lot of fun to just play on the turntable. Among the tunes: It Had Better Be Tonight, Royal Blue, The Tiber Twist, The Lonely Princess. The film is a great joy as well.

Sound quality is surprisingly good even though it was subjected to Dynagroove processing. Used copies of this album are usually very well-worn, this was an LP that people tended to play over and over again.

That is the only post-Gabriel Genesis album I like. You should really get the new remaster, though, as I can hear a very distict improvement compared to the original CD.

Tonight's listening: "Best of the Doobies", by the Doobie Brothers. Warner Bros. LP from 1977. All the usual suspects - "Listen to the Music, "Black Water", "Rockin' Down the Highway". Heavily multitracked mid-70s analog sound, compressed but not nearly as much as most of today's pop music.

Tchaikovsky: Symphony No. 5 in E minor, Op. 64.
The Cleveland Orchestra, George Szell, conductor
CBS Great Performances LP MY37767 (1982 reissue). Link to the late-1980s CD reissue sold at amazon.com

Szell presents a very crisp, incisive reading of Tchaikovsky's symphony which is surprisingly persuasive. The 1959 recording at Cleveland's Severance Hall has a fairly natural but slightly dry timbre.

To those who scrounge through thrift stores, yard sales and flea markets, the CBS Great Performances LP reissues from the 1980s are very commonplace and often of surprisingly high quality. CBS launched this mid-price reissue series in June 1981 using surprisingly high-quality re-mastering from original source tapes, frequently providing audibly superior dynamic range and lower distortion than the earlier Columbia Masterworks and Columbia Odyssey LP issues. Equally important, the CBS Great Performances LPs were pressed using very quiet vinyl formulations. Very frequently, I've found these reissues offer nearly-silent surfaces along with great dynamic contrast and instrumental timbre. The original source recordings often were heavily multi-miked and very bright - sometimes with exaggerated "hi-fi" reverberation associated with recording venues like New York City's Manhattan Center. However, these commonplace LP reissues tend to be as good as the hard-to-find Japanese or European CBS import pressings.

Best of all, the CBS Great Performances LPs tend to offer some of the "cream of the crop" recorded performances by CBS classical artists of the 1950s and 1960s. The actual recorded performances by Leonard Bernstein, Isaac Stern, Eugene Ormandy, and Rudolf Serkin often are incredibly powerful renditions of well-known repertory.
