HMV D.1265-70 Album no.45. Matrices: CR1235-46 (Ia,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,Ia,I) Recorded: 27 March 1927 - Queen’s Hall
Minor 'wear' audible on some peaks despite the 1928 set's 'new' appearance. A (very) low-level recording means unavoidably high surface hiss.
Much additional (2-part) de-click required....Impressive performance and lovely string tone..
THERE MAY BE A SMALL 'COMPUTER SOUND EDITING FAULT' (the HD was failing) near the end - only just heard it via the new HD - so may re-transfer/re-edit the affected part .....but these transfers are anyway FOR ME: - nobody else seems interested - except to download them, needless to say...
