These early Lyritas were private off-air recordings but made on top-flight equipment for their time on reel - to reel tape that was subsequently archived and probably never played. The receiver was close to the transmitter and what you hear is what I used to hear on my Quad valve tuner and amplifier. It is vintage sound but the Hi-Fi of the day. Some are mono recordings and some stereo and this disc is a mixture of both.
We do have a retail arrangement with Lyrita which allows us to sell these discs at ridiculously cheap prices - £9 with free postage even to America or Australia. Lyrita in the guise of Nimbus also advertise with us but MusicWeb has always sold Lyrita mail order even when you could not get them from anyone else.
MusicWeb reviewers are totally independent of any commercial considerations and review what they hear without fear or favour.
