The London records label, is actually a Decca record, they where pressed on the same plant in England,but covers where made in the USA.
The reason for this, is that another record company in the USA already had the rights for use of the Decca name, the gold-Deccalabel DL 7100 etc., so Decca England had to change the name to London to be able to sell records in the usa.
The Londons are the bargin-records if you want some of the great performances with conductor Ernest Ansermet and La orchestra Suisse Romande, Artulio Argenta, Ricci and many others on Deccas which cost a fortune to buy.
Many collectors will say or claim that Deccas allways sound better then the London counterpart, i find this, not to be true, by having compared the two labels on many occasions, both of my own collection and those that my friends have.
The 4 records shown in my pictures, are true audio legends and memorable performances in music histrory, and will give you goosebumps when you listen to the music on these records.
Clarity, warmth, dynamics are keywords for these records
Coverart on these records are also truely nice with bold colors and imagnitive themes.
All London bluebacks are very collectable records,
