Notes and Editorial Reviews

In the late 1940s, the pioneering Decca recording engineers perfected a new set of microphone techniques that allowed the full range of frequencies to be fully heard by listeners for the first time, and the term ‘full frequency range recording’ was launched. It was a major revolution in sound quality, and the beginnings of high fidelity. Perfected with the birth of stereo in the mid-1950s, Decca’s ‘Full Frequency Stereophonic Sound’ became a worldwide hallmark of sonic excellence and a golden age of classical recorded music was born. THE ANALOGUE YEARS presents a 50-Album overview across 54 CDs, in original jackets, of the celebrated international recordings that emerged from the London-based record label in that pre-digital era.

 Excellent music...and a genuine bargain. January 9, 2014 By David A. (San Antonio, TX) See All My Reviews "This is a great set of recordings. Don't pass it up." Report Abuse
 A terrific compendium December 26, 2013 By Stuart A. (Glencoe, IL) See All My Reviews "Decca has done a magnificent job of remastering these analogue recordings from their early "ffss" days. By and large they sound great. And, the selection of quite eclectic. I have very few quibbles about the selections and have enjoyed listening to the CDs very much. For any long time collector this box demonstrates once again the fine quality of the original recordings and is a source of much enjoyment. My only regret is that the quite extensive book that accompanies the box has very little information about the compositions recorded which would have been helpful for those CDs with which one was not familiar. Nevertheless, this box is highly recommended." Report Abuse
