Royal Philharmonic Orchestra  conducted by  Sir Thomas Beecham

Philips  ABL 3015  Original LP - hand-inscribed matrices: AA01130 1L-10 / 2L-4.  Recorded: December 1953 - Walthamstow Town Hall.

Far superior to the reissue (GL5636) in realism/bass depth/power. This pressing was physically Pristine, but some 'noise' at start of side 1 prompted a re-wash - and the LP got damaged (the original dub was retained). I am not amused by this: like most of my collection it had never been 'washed' - and otherwise scarcely needed it.
Minimal '1.2' de-click/slight treble added - Sleeve-note >>>
