RE:Mantovani Christmas Carols - Real Gone CD
(Date Posted:11/11/2017 10:49)
I have both versions of this masterpiece by Mantovani, and I believe that Chip in a previous post a while back verified that the same exact remaster was used by Collectors Choice and Real Gone Music for both releases. Remember that Collector's Choice was Gordon Anderson's old company before he started Real Gone Music. By the way, the remastering is beautiful on this classic. If you were lucky enough to purchase RGM's new expanded version of Music Of Christmas and appreciate the fantastic and magnificent remaster that Vic Anesini did with that one by the one and only Percy Faith, you will love this indispensable classic.
Now the artwork is slightly different as the RGM 2016 version is superior and more accurately reflects the original London Stereophonic labeling across the top of the front of the cover and it has the FFSS labeling on the CD itself and it also fixed the color of the Christmas bulb with the angel from red to the original gold as seen on the front cover as well. Small details, but to serious collectors like Chip and I, important ones.
I hope this helps, either way you can't go wrong, but I prefer the newer version from RGM.
