Dan, a group of enthusiasts in California was so convinced of the 'sonic advantages' of direct-to- disc recordings that they formed their own label, Sheffield Lab Recordings, and made audiophile LPs by this method throughout the 1970s. This shows, incidentally, that the d-t-d approach wasn't consigned to history when magnetic tape was widely adopted. Sheffield Lab recorded both classical and non-classical titles. As well as being recorded d-t-d, sessions could be simultaneously recorded on tape. A number of the classical releases contained performances by the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Erich Leinsdorf. Some of these titles remain available, but currently only as CDs - not LPs.
