Notes and Editorial Reviews

Also available: RCA Living Stereo Collection Vol 1

This box contains 45 legendary Living Stereo recordings on 60 standard CDs packaged in minisleeves with the original artwork, plus a 252-page perfect-bound book with track listings and original liner notes.

In the 1950’s, RCA Victor made a substantial body of recordings which have come to be identified with their first stereo label, Living Stereo. At the beginning of the widespread adoption of stereo audio in the home, Living Stereo offered a wide range of music, performances, and audio
Read more quality that are still considered to be definitive today. The first commercial stereophonic recording was made by RCA in 1954 of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Charles Munch, performing The Damnation of Faust. This began the practice of simultaneously recording orchestras with both stereophonic and monaural equipment. Living Stereo influenced many classical recordings made since and represents an important part of audiophile history.

The Living Stereo Collection Volume 2 features performances from great artists and orchestras, including Vladimir Horowitz, Byron Janis, Arthur Rubinstein, Fritz Reiner, Erich Leinsdorf, Arthur Fiedler, Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Boston Pops Orchestra, Boston Symphony Orchestra, and many more.

This set contains the following albums on 60 standard CDs.
Some of these recordings may be available individually or as part of other sets, but because so many of the CDs in this set only partially match previously released CDs, it is not practical to try to provide cover art or links to individual albums. We regret any inconvenience.

 RCA Living Stereo Collection Vol. Two October 4, 2014 By Kenneth Wene (Mechanicsville, VA) See All My Reviews "The remastering is excellent, captures all of the detail. I grew up with many of these recordings, remember when they were released. It's a pleasure to hear them again in such high definition." Report Abuse
 Wonderful Natural Sound August 31, 2014 By Bruce Boss (Grass Valley, CA) See All My Reviews "When you buy either Box I or II of the RCA Living Stereo collection you are buying into some of the most wonderful sounding recordings of the "Golden Age" of Stereo that started in 1958 and produced some of the best sounding recordings you will ever hear. It is only recently that sound engineers and CD equipment designers have been able to design equipment that makes CD's that justify making the LP's from the golden age into CD's and also it is only since the year 1995 that you could buy CD's that had the rich sounds we came to expect in the 1960's. Techniques like upsampling and great digital filtering have come a long way to making CD's sound "good." This has made it possible to hear the Living Stereo collection today almost as it sounded on LP's 50 years ago. I have a Marantz $1,000 CD player that I feel justifies the expense. Too many people think that all CD players sound the same. That is so terrible. The only drawback from these Living Stereo Boxes is that you commit yourself to a specific interpretation, but fortunately, most of these are memorable." Report Abuse
 Great Classical Performances July 7, 2014 By Milton U. (Greeley, CO) See All My Reviews "This remastered collection of the Classic RCA Red Seal recordings is an excellent cross section of several excellent performers with a wide variety of musical genres. The individual recordings are well organized and easy to locate. A book of liner notes are included rather than trying to reproduce the notes from the original recording jackets. If there were any shortcoming from the collection I might have two minor complaints. The collection is an exact duplication of the original phonograph LPs so that the disks are generally short in length. Secondly, my preference would have been to have the two volume sets contain similar classes of music by style (ie opera, symphonic, solo instruments). Thus lovers of one style in preference could select the set which they might prefer" Report Abuse
