My copy sounds pristine. Not a single pop or click on the entire record. You can tell this was pressed with a tremendous amount of care. Quality, not quantity!

My copy has at least 3 minutes of clicks and pops on side 1 it was sealed so it is a bad Quality Records pressing. I can not see or hear the Quality, on the other hand mastering is excellent.

What a release! It's a Spectacle! Wonderful! The best pressing you can imagine with the most beautiful classical work of The Master Korsakov!

Reiner was considered an a..hole from those who worked under him but the results he got may have been worth it. His version of Scheherazade leaves all others in the dust. My favorite Classical LP ever. Check out Festival.. also on Living stereo among other fine recordings by this conducter.
