The Philadelphia Orchestra conducted by Leopold Stokowski
HMV DB.8633-36 Auto (DB.3511-14) Album no.328 1940 pressings/RCA Matrices (originally: CS 07588/90-1, 07591-3, 07592/4-1, 07595-2) Recorded: 19 April / 7 November 1937 - Academy of Music (Philadelphia)
Side 1 +2dB, Sides 2,3 +1dB transferred compared to Sides 4-8 (the latter were also somewhat superior recording sessions).
Surface-noise is mostly quite innocuous thanks to the high-level sound/RCA's HF EQ...plus some decent EMI shellac.
