I can have posted this album on other label.
Today, I had a chance listening to this album again, both side because of Hong Kong Typhoon no. 8 that allow me staying home.
What it surprises me is that. This recording is not just superb, it has a good balance in total tonal scale horizontally and vertically.
This music is loud but gentle, you don't feel noisy at all.
This is purely a demo for Analogue Music Show.
I had played this album using Koetsu Rosewood Signature II cartridge. Today, I use Lyra Helicon, it is another level up in clarity, but not as full as the Koetsu in bass performance...
I have started looking to buy other Volume under this Stereo Laboratory.

A well written article about Grace Chang, and her record, yes this is a rare and very beautifully recorded article in 1954. (half a century ago, printed in USA)
Price is soaring high, I bought it at HKD$1,600 5 years ago.
Try if you have not listened this LP! Try...

The Cover design itself is a fantastic artwork made by Al Hirschfeld
Mantovani and His Orchestra
To those Millions of people who as the baby bloomers all over the world know well about this man Mantovani as his music represents the ultimate in the listening pleasure.
Mantovani has devised a unique formula which relies on co-ordination of all talents to make possibility to transcending the barrier between the “Classic” a “pop”!
He draws upon an ast0onishing wide range of compositions for his recording: sometime adapting the melody of popular song, sometimes an operatic aria of an overture, sometimes a catchy tune imported from an European country, sometimes a haunting theme the highlights of a stage musical…
I came to talk to Paul to look for me as many as he could some of the goodies of Mantovani, he passed me these Yesterday at his shop!
I am glad and I am now listening to them, the masterpieces works from this Italian Music master.

Sometimes when I am lonely, or when I was at Work on the Note Book Computer at home or Hotel, I try to put this CD onto the equipment, and you will follow Louis to Sing.
One of the best recordings as the songs are so good, so touching... you will mesmerize his way of singing, his trumpet and the way they play jazz in the 50s.
I rate this CD 4 star out of 5!

I am sure this is the top 100 recordings in the last century, live and applausing, Music is fantastic, arrangement is stunting, and Henry sung "Matilda" with all the audience to end the show, one of the most entertaining episode..."Woman over 40!"
You know what I mean if you have listened this section.
This is re-issue copy, Price HKD$800 6 years ago.,

No Conductor, No Semiconductor
- This is a pure Analogue Recording using likely the world best recorder Telefunken made in 1950.
From what I can see that the tubes is Telefunken ECC803S!!
So this is a real analogue music reproduction using the OLDEST But BEST technology as they do not even have a single transistor or IC!
Listen to believe it!
