Analogue Productions' RCA Living Stereo Reissue Series No. 2, with 25 newly remastered mainstay classical albums, will delight and astound your ears with their clarity and warm, rich tone. As with our first highly-regarded LSC series, shortcomings of previous editions have been improved upon — from the mastering, to the LP pressing, to the sharp-looking glossy heavyweight Stoughton Printing tip-on jackets that faithfully duplicate the original artwork, "Living Stereo" logo, "Shaded Dog" label and all! Mastered by Ryan K. Smith at Sterling Sound from the original 2-track master tapes, cut at 33 1/3, and plated and pressed at Quality Record Pressings — makers of the world's finest-sounding vinyl LPs, — no other editions match these for the quietest 200-gram platters available. "Billy The Kid" as a ballet is considerably more than conventional gunplay and heroics. Composer Aaron Copland used Western and cowboy melodies for his score. American musical nationalism received a tremendous boost with this jaunty, tuneful, atmospheric composition. Likewise, "Rodeo" is one of the liveliest things Copland ever wrote, and it's no surprise that it should have developed into one of his most popular scores.
