A treasure trove of work from one of the greatest runs of classical music ever recorded – packaged here in a totally sweet set! Like the first limited volume in this series, this second one features a heavy cube that contains 60 classic albums in the RCA Living Stereo series packaged in tiny LP-style covers – plus a full booklet of notes on all the music, and wonderful sound throughout! RCA really helped pioneer the use of stereo in classical music – and these 60 albums really showcase not only the best technical side of the label, but also its amazing ear for talent and composition – which made for a legacy that few other companies could ever hope to match.
