The following several sections are devoted to listings of records by manufacturer in order of prefix and issue number. In most of these cases, either an individual item or a whole series has a following among groups of collectors on the basis of either quality of recorded sound to begin with or of pressing vintage (or both); in some cases (audiophile or not) the label per se has so devoted a following that it makes sense to list discs here rather than in an artist or repertoire category. Since many of these audiophiles are also followers of The Abso!ute Sound magazine, I have also included notations when I have found reviews or comments regarding specific discs in this publication. These take the form of the issue number followed by a colon, then the page number, i.e. [38:155]. Please consult these references directly if you are interested in what TAS has said. Their content in generally favorable, but they are not always so. Also, I have included these references even in cases where TAS has discussed or listed a different issue of the same recording I have listed (for example, a domestic vs. an imported pressing, or a reissue vs. original issue). So do not automatically assume that a TAS reference means a rave review of the specific item listed. When the letter "L" follows one of these notes, it means that the item was included on Harry Pearson's list on that page in that issue (rather than meaning that the item received an actual review or comment). [If you have a specific interest in the early Columbia stereo pressings with "2-eyes" labels, or the even earlier "6-eyes" pressings, here is where they are in this catalog: # 227, 283-4, 424, 434, 484-5, 814, 894, 901, 903, 917, 949, 1009, 1030, 1082, 1084, 1120, 1167, 1193-6, 1214, 1244, 1264, 1267, 1272, 1278-9, 1299, 1331-2, 1334-5, 1375-9, 1401, 1427, 1443, 1449-51, 1453-8, 1460-3, 1532, 1536, 1542-44, 1546, 1548, 1550-1, 1555, 1604-5, 1607-8 & 1610..]

LP's: Angels
All of the mono Angels below (except as noted) are early British pressings from the period 1953-1958 when Dario Soria was Angel's president. Except as noted otherwise, these copies are the deluxe editions, with fine art work on the covers, extra heavy sleeves and dowel-rod spines (boxed sets did not have the dowel-rod spines). In a few instances the spine is gone (indicated with "ns"); in some cases the copy is from their thrift edition ("th"), wherein the same fine pressings were packaged in simple sleeves without notes and sold for lower prices than the deluxe editions. Stereo items are usually either early pressings ["red" = red label for the very earliest of them, or "blue" = blue label used until the late '60's] or 45 rpm audiophile issues from the early 1980's. I sometimes also list other stereo Angels here when their EMI incarnations have been particularly popular.

LP's: Mercuries
For the SR series (and some of the others) I am now replacing my previous pressing designation by means of label-type with designations by means of stamper numbers, since most of my customers seem to find that information more complete and useful. The FR's are the earliest stampers, followed by the RFR's, CFR's and M's. FR stampers no longer appeared in issues with numbers above about SR-90265 (some earlier numbers may also have been pressed first as RFR's), and there were no RFR's either above about SR-90500. Excellent (or mint) copies of Mercury's early stereo pressings (particularly those with the early FR stampers), like those of most companies in the late 50's and early 60's, sometimes grade A- but frequently have a degree of surface noise which falls a little below my audition grade of A-, yet is quieter than what I grade B+. These are graded "A- to B+." Items graded A- are very fine copies of very quiet pressings, and grades above that are exceptional.

LP's: RCA's
I am now listing RCA's all together in one group when they are either early pressings in which customers have indicated an interest, or when they are later pressings of issues which have had a particular following. Records are listed alphanumerically by prefix and number. Codes for pressings refer to label types, and are given in brackets just before the grade at the end of the listing (e.g. [SD]). RCA pressing codes are as follows:
PD = Plum Dog (Nipper, the RCA/HMV dog, shown against a shaded plum background; used for the last RCA classical mono issues, c.1954-1958).

SD = Shaded Dog (as above, but with fire-engine red background; used during the early stereo era, c.1958-1963, for both mono and stereo classical issues except some Sorias).

WD = White Dog (also called "Plain Dog"; Nipper here is against an unshaded background of Christmas red; used for all classical issues except Sorias c.1964-1969).

ND = No Dog (large "RCA" in open white letters on left of label; c.1969-1977).

LD = Late Dog (small dog on upper right of label against dark red; c.1977 forward).

BL = Black label (for popular records almost exclusively)

CP = Canadian Pressing.

PL = Plum Label (Victrola VIC or VICS issues, the earliest pressings, c. 1964-1968).

SS = Soria Series (special label of Christmas red with no dog used only for the Sorias; the first Sorias had SD labels, but switched to SS about 1961 - before WD era).
I am now also including the stamper numbers of each stereo disc (and some monos too) next to the pressing code. If the information is available I also show the names of the producer and engineer in another pair of brackets. Please note that for these issues - as for most records from the early stereo era - copies in apparently mint condition frequently grade "A- to B+" in my audition. Copies graded A- are very fine, and higher grades are quite extraordinary from this period.

The first Reiner/CSO sessions were held on March 6, 1954 and included Ein Heldenleben & Salome's Dance. The Zarathustra, though taped 2 days later, is often thought of as their first recording since it took the lower catalog number (LM-1806, as opposed to Heldenleben's LM-1807), and it probably remains Reiner's most famous recording. The stereo issue (LSC-1806), which came much later and is incredibly scarce, did not include the Dance, which didn't show up on stereo LP until the VICS era.
