    Arthur Fiedler & The Boston Pops perform Respighi's ballet score based on Rossini's late piano music. Ibert's Divertissement is drawn from the incidental score the composer produced for the farcical nineteenth century Labiche play "The Italian Straw Hat." An old favorite RCA Shaded Dog from 1959.

    The "golden age" of recordings was from 1955 to 1965, at the beginning of the LP and the stereo era, where pure vacuum tube amplification helped produce recordings demonstrating unparalleled fidelity and warmth, lifelike presence and illumination.

     This Analogue Productions LP was remastered by Ryan Smith at Sterling Sound, using pure analogue components only, from the original analogue studio tapes through to the cutting head and was pressed on 200-gram virgin vinyl at Quality Record Pressings.
