Remastered from first-generation session tapes at Soundmirror Inc., Boston MA

These sessions were originally recorded to 3-track 1/2-inch tape on Ampex 300 tape machines.

Typical RCA mic setups included Neumann M-49 and U-47 condenser and RCA 77DX ribbon mics. Microphones were connected to custom-made RCA mixing consoles, which in turn fed the Ampex tape recorders.

Acclaimed conductor Arthur Fiedler leads the Boston Pops Orchestra and Earl Wild through masterworks by George Gershwin. This is one of Living Stereo’s bestselling compilations. The performances are powerful and crisp, the recordings lush and detaied. This landmark recording is essential for any library.
