It's all about the music, dude! Sit down, relax and listen to some tunes.

Must Buy

I've been enjoying this set now for several days. As much as I thought I knew some of these recordings, I did not know as much as I thought I knew.

My playback system has changed drastically in the last twenty years. It has evolved and improved and I now see that many of my previous prejudices concerning the Mercury recordings stemmed almost entirely from the quality of the playback system that I was using at the time and from a faulty memory. Listening to these recordings anew has set the record straight.

I said earlier that recording technology has improved a lot in fifty years. I was entirely wrong. Based on this set, recording technology has not improved at all in fifty years. These recordings embarrass current recordings. The Mercury recordings sound miraculous.

Perhaps the superb sound quality of these recordings stems from the use of the legendary tube-based Telefunken U-47 mics or perhaps the superb sound quality of these recordings reflects the skills of recording engineers Bob Fine and Wilma Cozart Fine but whatever the case may be, the music quality and sound quality of these recordings HAS NEVER BEEN EQUALED and probably never will be equaled. These recordings represent the high water mark, the absolute best that sound recording has ever achieved.

I consider this set an absolute must buy for all audiophiles. Do not hesitate!
