Subject: [ARSCLIST] Concert-Disc label
I've been looking at CONCERT-DISC releases, and hope someone can provide some information.
There appear to be 2 series of single LP's and a series of Box sets.
A popular series, lowest number I've seen is CS-20 (stereo), mono equivalents M-1020 ff. Correct. I don’t show anything lower than than in my catalogues.
What is last (CS-53) ?? CS-53 – Red Nichols and His Five Pennies, were followed by:
CS-54 – The Folk Singers’ Folk Singer – Frank Hamilton; and
CS-55 – Lots of Nichols
Classical series CS-201 (stereo), mono equivalents M-1201 ff.
What is last (CS 261) ?? That is correct—the Mendelssohn Octet, etc. with the Fine Arts Quartet.
Box sets in a 500 series SP-501, mono MP-1501 ff.
What is last (507) ?? Yes, 507/3, a 3-LP set of the Beethoven Early Quartets (Op. 18, Nos. 1-6) with the Fine Arts Quartet
Were the box sets a product of the original company, or solely from Everest ?? I do not believe these originated with Everest.
There are a number of series designations
Sound in the Round
- what is the significance of these, does AUDIOPHILE have anything to do with the Audiophile label ?? This I am not sure about. Perhaps others have more information.
Best wishes, Thomas.
