Among Classic Records' highlight accomplishments was unlocking the audio majesty of the Everest 35mm magnetic film recordings on a groundbreaking reissue series. Everest LPs through the early 1960s were recorded on 3-channel 35mm magnetic film recording equipment. 35mm magnetic film yielded greater fidelity and less noise than standard 1/4" recording tape. The Westrex Corporation built special equipment to Everest's specifications to accomplish these advantages. Fast forward to today: Analogue Productions is resurrecting this collection through an initial 10-title reissue series. Bernie Grundman cut the Classic Records reissues at both 33 and 45 RPM — the 45 RPM versions have never been reissued! Each 2LP set comes with a Stoughton Printing tip-on original jacket and an Everest Records branded jacket showing photos of each reissue title. The two LPs are packaged in a protective clear sleeve. 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. This Bert Whyte recording is from Walthamstow Assembly Hall in London — the same hall used extensively by the Decca and Kenneth Wilkinson.
