VA - Mercury Living Presence vol.3 - 53CD BOX SET - 2015, Part 1


OVERVIEW
This landmark release marks the point at which the entire Mercury Living Presence catalogue, as remastered by original recording producers in the 1990s, is available in physical form. Decca are also proud to present, in this concluding cube, no fewer than 10 albums that have never before been on CD, restored and remastered from fragile tapes, to allow the fullest possible ever appreciation of a landmark label in the history of classical recorded music. Furthermore, the booklet is a model of its kind, setting out in the fullest possible detail everything about the recording, from the engineers and producers to the microphones, tapes, dates and locations.


NEVER BEFORE ON CD…
Working with Wilma Cozart Fine’s son, Thomas Fine, and Andrew Walter at London’s Abbey Road Studios, Decca proudly present 10 new albums, never before on CD, restored from the original tapes, restored and remastered. This has involved the application of new technology combined with delicate handling of these fragile tapes, some untouched since original release in the late 1950s, to secure the best possible sound. The results are remarkable and beyond all expectation, due in part to new processes which can eliminate the mechanical distortion, wow and flutter and smearing inherent in the recording techniques of the 1950s without destroying the original, bright, clear sound which made the label so famous. The ten albums are:
