RCA Victor BCS-41 - ARTHUR FIEDLER AND THE BOSTON POPS: HI-FI FEIDLER
This tape is one of the better RCA Living Stereos, the sound quality is fantastic, and so are the musical selections.
Rossini’s William Tell Overture, a familiar-to-all favorite is amazing. Like many I first remember hearing the Finale, The March Of The Swiss Soldiers, as the theme song of the old Lone Ranger TV show. Hi-Yo Silver away !
(I sorta miss old b&w re-runs, I guess most of them are on YouTube but they just ain’t the same.)
The BPO conducted by Arthur Fiedler does a hell of a job on this one, all stops pulled all the way out !
Tchaikovsky’s Marche Slav is another dynamic and dramatic piece of music, and another early stereo marvel ! Amazing sonics ! It’s a reel barn burner !
The cover illustration, by the way, features one of my favorite vintage speakers, the mighty LC1A 15” coaxial. I used to have a pair in Jensen Imperial cabinets and this tape sounded especially good on that system.
The reel and the flat tape pack look very good. The tape itself is fresh, flat and supple with a long leader, it plays from start to finish with no problems of any sort.
The pack is nice and flat on the reel, the tape itself is flat and supple. This tape plays from beginning to end with no distortion or problems of any sort.
