Re: [ARSCLIST] Pristine Audio and sound quality
There was a better one posted at the Google group last month.I have this on both a 1951 Lp transfer,and a later US 78 pressing,from about 1939-40.I have yet to hear a pressing of this I really like,even the blue shellac Columbias,that I am usually a big champion of.I have not heard a UK,German,etc. EMI/Columbia of this.

I wonder about the accuracy of judgement of quality based on audio
distributed via the internet.
And, as I'm sure we've all experienced, not all restoration projects are
equally good even when eminating from the same studio.
