Berlioz : Symphonie Fantastique by London Symphony Orchestra, Sir Eugene Goossens conductor. Another of the fabulous Goossens' efforts conducting the London Symphony Orchestra in a rousing performance of this Berlioz masterpiece. The performance, full of imaginative and brilliant orchestral sounds is wonderfully complemented by the 35mm sound which has a textural richness that is more realistic than any other tape format.

The "golden age" of recordings was from 1955 to 1965, at the beginning of the stereo era, where pure vacuum tube amplification helped produce recordings demonstrating unparalleled fidelity and warmth, lifelike presence and illumination.

This Analogue Productions LP was remastered by Bernie Grundman using pure analogue components only, from the original analogue studio tapes through to the cutting head and was pressed on 200-gram virgin vinyl at Quality Record Pressings.
