Most rarest LSC since it followed MERCURY’s SR-90054 1812/Dorati release. The 1812 originally released in 1956 as the LM-1999, but when the Dorati came out in 1958, Victor tried to match that release with Reiner’s recording, but the Reiner couldn’t hold a candle to the SR-90054, thus if faded into obscurity. Thus with limited pressings, if one found, this would be a 1s/1s pressing.

Hi, op712.

Thanks for the great comment. My pressing of this one is indeed 1S/1S. I haven’t yet done a comparison of it with the Dorati 1812 on Mercury, but I have many copies of that record, so I’ll have to do so soon. Fun!
