Lots of collectible and audiophile titles to look at here. I read somewhere that less than 900 copies were printed of the Reiner/CSO 1812 (LSC-2241) before it was replaced with a version using real cannons — like the Dorati/MSO on Mercury Living Presence (SR90054). Someone please correct me if I am wrong about this fun little fact.

Update: Looks like I forgot one. This one is actually one of my favorites. Great artwork, sound, and music. What more could you want?

  • LSC-2342 – Sibelius — Symphony No. 2 ~ London Symphony Orchestra, Monteux

A New Site For RCA Living Stereo Fans

by Mark Wieman on March 5, 2011

Welcome to Shaded Dog!

It’s taken about a year to get it off the ground, and I’m excited to finally push the “launch” button. There is much left to do before the site becomes a comprehensive resource, but it feels great to get the framework in place. The Discography section, in particular, will be expanded and fleshed out dramatically in coming weeks and months. Please check out the About page for a full description of the site and how it will evolve over time.

I sincerely hope this site helps collectors and fans of golden era classical LPs. Please take a moment to start or participate in a discussion in the Forum — it’s free to join and open to all. Also, feel free to add your comments, additions, or corrections to any record page in the Discography. Finally, don’t hesitate to email me with your thoughts and ideas about the site. I’d love to hear from you.

Happy listening,

Mark Wieman
