The Best Recordings Available,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Wings of a Dove: Original 1927-1938 Recordings (Audio CD)
I received this CD yesterday and immediately played it. Actually, I'm listening to it right now and, frankly, the age related noise on the recordings is comparatively minimal. It's inevitable that, on any remastered wax cylinder recordings, there will be a certain amount of background noise. Remastering engineers have a difficult choice, do they attempt to totally remove age related 'hiss and pop' and interfere with the original sound or do they remove just so much so as not to interfere with the original recording's resonance and ambiance? The recordings on this CD are about as 'cleaned up' as you can get.
In any case, these wonderful masterpieces are a joy to listen to. Sadly and inevitably, Lough passed away in 2000 but his young voice is preserved for eternity. In this respect he has achieved immortality.
