Leinsdorf/BSO: Mahler Symphony No. 1 (rec. 1962) - RCA LSC-2642
Jacket VG- / LP NM / US pressing
This handsome LP from RCA (LSC-2642, US pressing, red/silver Dynagroove label, stereo) features conductor Erich Leinsdorf and the Boston Symphony Orchestra’s powerful account of Mahler’s Symphony No. 1, richly recorded at Symphony Hall, Boston, on 20 October 1962.
This album was produced by Richard Mohr and engineered by Lewis Layton. The fascinating liner notes on the reverse side of the jacket are by Richard Mohr himself. The striking cover photo of Leinsdorf is uncredited.
The gradations of condition I use are as follows: MINT, Near-Mint, Excellent, Very Good, Good, Fair, Poor.
The condition of the jacket is VERY GOOD-. There is edgewear and some mild discoloration, but that is all. There are no seamsplits, bends, owners' markings, or other defects, and the album remains solid, bright, glossy, and highly attractive – overall, a very good collector's copy.
The condition of the LP itself is near-MINT and it plays without defect – a superb collector's copy.
