As you may know,the one on LCT-1014 is the later electrical recording from
1938,'39,or '40.The 1924 acoustic one,which I have,is one of the scarcest Victor
78 sets of the acoustic era.I have a copy,it's in a generic Victor Musical
Masterpieces leather binder,with a picture of a batwing label.It's detailed in
Oliver Daniel's definitive biography of Stokowski,my copy is in
storage,unfortunately,but here's a page about it.
Here's a page on how Stokowski and the PO recorded acoustic sides.

Factual information on the following questions much appreciated.
1. The date listed for the Rachmaninoff-Stokowski recording on the 1992 CD
reissue is 1924. So this is originally an acoustic recording? Any information on
how this was done, for instance were multiple horns used? Where was it done?
2. Any information on the source material and the transfer methods used for the
1992 CD reissue?
3. Any information on the source material and the transfer methods used for the
RCA reissue LP LCT 1014?
