Legacy

Legacy

Profile:
Sony Music setup Legacy recordings in 1990 to restore and release the 100+ year-old catalog housed in the Sony archive.
(Sometimes indicated as "Legacy Recordings", do not confuse with Legacy Recordings. For unofficial releases, see Legacy (3).)

Label Code: LC 2361 / LC 02361 (from 1999).

The multiple Grammy-winning Legacy Recordings (Sony Music Entertainment’s catalog division) produces and maintains the world’s foremost catalog of historic reissues, an unparalleled compendium of thousands of digitally remastered archival titles representing virtually every musical genre including popular, rock, jazz, blues, R&B, folk, country, gospel, Broadway musicals, movie soundtracks, ethnic, world music, classical, comedy, and more. The labels covered by Legacy's brief include the frontline Columbia and Epic imprints, plus the historic American Record Corporation (ARC), Okeh, Brunswick, Ode Records (2) and Vocalion (2) labels.

Founded in 1990 by CBS Records (rebranded Sony Music in 1991), Legacy's original mission was to preserve and reissue recordings from the extensive catalogs of Columbia Records (including ARC, Brunswick, OKeh, and Vocalion), Epic Records (including Philadelphia International Records), and associated CBS labels. Following the creation of Sony BMG Music Entertainment in 2005, Legacy assumed responsibility for the preservation and ongoing availability of recordings from the archives of the BMG family of labels including RCA Records, Arista, J Records, Jive, Profile, Silvertone, Sony BMG Nashville, and Windham Hill, as well as imprints including American, Bang!, CTI, Mainstream, Monument, Ode, and others.

My copy of Kind of Blue plays well, no discernible surface noise (what some call "clicks and pops"). Sound stage is deep and wide and separation is notable, with depth (Coltrane sounds big as life and standing right in front of my B&W Nautilus 803s). All good.

Avoid! Every single Legacy I own has clicks and pops right out of the sleeve and vacuumed before being played. Not even after cleaning them in my ultrasonic player. Miles Davis Kind of Blue is the worse, Pink Floyd Wish You Were Here, Elvis' Golden Records, The Essential Johnny Cash... all are flawed. I have read reviews on releases by this label from others having the same issues. Avoid!

Quite fond of this label, have several and all are good. Nontheless, do your homework 1st, don't assume anything on face value.

Good and quiet pressings. My only complain is the vinyl art which looks really blurred.
