It is tempting to write off as pedestrian a disc that features performances of the ubiquitous "Rhapsody in Blue" and "American in Paris". But pedestrian this disc is not, either for sound or for performances.

There is so much to marvel about here. By the early 60's (6 or 7 years after it’s initial stereo recordings) RCA had just about made the transition from mono and was producing it very best stereo to that point. The music and the production is top tier even by today’s best, especially the 3-channel layer. Regarding the production, the depth and soundstage are suspended in such a way that the music rarely, if ever, gives the speakers away, even in the light of day. This is truly extraordinary given the vintage of the recordings when the "ping pong" phenomenon that blatantly spot lit the 2 stereo speakers was still the presentation of choice among many labels.

I'm no Gershwin expert but the performances of all 5 compositions, nearly 80 minutes worth, really excite me. "Rhapsody in Blue" and "American in Paris" are anything but sway-backed warhorses here. The performances are fresh and exhilarating. And the "Concerto in F", which I had heard before but not really listened to, was a wonderful find. I enjoyed pianist Earl Wild, so much so that when I first bought the disc I looked him up on the web fully to read his biography, expecting something like "he was born xxxx and died xxxx" (as what is usually the case with recordings of this vintage). Hey at 90+ he is alive and kickin’ (last time I checked) and still giving recitals!

The sound is great is either two-channel or three channel.

A lot of bang for the buck. Robert C. Lang @ sa-cd.net
