i really love the the sound of the first decca/london classical records,
i regard both labels to equaly good in sound, unlike many who think the deccas are the best, allthough both labels very made at the same plant in england, if there is a difference it is down to condition, the deccas where better keept then london s, this is something i have seen and heard many times.
i also like emi asd and columbia sax, dgg tulips, rca lsc, philips sabl, columbia ms, blue angel s early recordings.
i find that in many cases the second ed. records tend to sound better then the 1 ed. records.
with decca the ace of diamonds series and the true stereo decca ecs, some of these outperform the originals by miles.
i have a quite extensive collection to draw my experience from.
i would be nice to share information/experience/sound/ opinions about different labes/cleaning metods etc with other collectors of classical records.
