VARIOUS-ORCHESTRAL The 100 Greatest Recordings Of All Time – Astonishing 1982 US ONE HUNDRED LP set, consisting of fifty double LP finely-bound hardcover cases [blue, green, burgundy, brown and tan], with gold filigree-style lettering on the front covers and spines, each with their own integral illustrated booklet with biographies, photographs, and detailed information about the music, composer, artist, and conductor. All LPs are pressed on 160gm Audiophile RED VINYL, each in their own anti-static lined sleeve that slide lovingly into the library case. An amazing sequence of no fewer than one hundred and eighty performances by some of the greatest soloists, orchestras & conductors of all recorded time, with each selection being made by a distinguished panel of music authorities [Martin Bookspan, Schuyler G. Chapin, Franco Ferrara, Irving Kolodin, William Mann, R. Gallois Montbrun, Marcel Prawy, Andre Previn, William Schuman and H. H. Stuckenschmidt] as being nearly definitive. Issued in celebration of the 100th anniversary of Thomas Edison’s invention of the phonograph, this collection was designed to be a truly unsurpassed private library of recorded music. Each box set of the fifty is complete with all orginal inserts & shows minimal scuffing to the outside of the case, with immaculate vinyl within. The set also comes with two fold out cross reference inserts for records one to fifty, and fifty one to one hundred, with a sixteen page booklet explaining the recording & production process. With content ranging from Enrico Caruso to Prokofiev & Rachmaninoff performing their own works. An incredible collection of some of the finest music of all time, produced to the highest audiophile standards, just waiting to pass on their many hours of stored enjoyment to the ears of a grateful listener!
