Why should you collect Angel blue label records ?
In most of the recordscollectors community they are rated as below good - , in quality both vinyl and masterring quality, i wonder how this can be possible.
The Angel blue label records i have in my collection say something very different, especially compared to their EMI counterparts, i find the Angel blue label, to less noisy, clearer, and most times more dynamic and natural sounding then the EMI´s.
The Angel Blue label you can get for almost no money, compaired to the
almost bizarre prices you have to pay for White/gold ASD EMI´s, its factor 1:20 for the ones displayed above.
To my ears they are in any way better then any EMI´s i have ever heard, and thats several houndreds of XXX White/gold ASD´s.
Let me know what you think about this statement.
1 st Record:
Angel S-35975, Rudolf Kempe, VPO, Kodaly, Hary Janos, etc.
The sound of this one is very open , fluid, warm, dynamic,there is no or very little surface noise on this record, the is openly displayed and communicating the inner detail of the music and the performing muscians, you forget all about speakers, amplifier, frequencyrange, and everything having to do with the hifi-system, i sit back and really enjoy the music, how often does that happen from a record ?
2 nd Record:
Angel S-36005,Nathan Milstein, Fistoulari,PO, Saint Sains Concerto no. 3, etc, the sound on this record is simular to the 1 st. record above, this one is a bit more dynamic, really a great record.
3 rd Record:
Angel S-35889, Malcolm Sargent, RPO, English ballets, superdynamic, open, wonderfull voices, open stage clearly displayed, truly great record
4 th Record:
Angel S-36338, John Barberolli, LSO, Jacqueline DuPre cello, Elgar Cello concerto, etc, the sound on this record is as crisp,open,weighty bodyly and dynamic as one ever could expect or hope to hear from a record, i am stunned every time i hear this record.
I wonder why, no one seems to have noticed the absolutely great sound on this record label, none of my EMI´s made from the same masters in England, do even come close in sound and performance, thats how they sounds to me.
Are we more stampcollectors then music/recordcollectors, that must be the answer to this question.
