You have a good chance of being one of the lucky AUDIOPHILE AUDITION readers this month to win the complete 51-CD Mercury Living Presence boxed set. We will be awarding two of them, but you will need to Register Here using our non-intrusive email-protected form. Mercury’s vinyls are regarded as part of the Golden Age of Classical Recording, and these superb CD remasterings from the three-channel tapes and 35mm mag films bring all 50 complete albums to new life, as described in our Feature article on the set. The two winners will be announced right here in July.
Here are the two lucky winners selected for last month’s drawing: The Claude Debussy 150th Anniversary set of 18-CDs from Decca Classics and DGG. Their Debussy collection will suddenly be much richer!: Robert Bashaw, Milton VT; James Verdini, Browns Summit NC.
AUDIOPHILE AUDITION began in 1985 as a weekly national radio series hosted by John Sunier, which aired for 13 1/2 years on up to 200 public radio and commercial stations coast to coast. In September 1998 its web site for programming information was expanded to the present Internet publication.
June 2012 is our 159th issue, and features improved navigation and enhanced appearance using Word Press. All disc reviews (120 for March) are added thru the month as they are written and received, usually daily. The most recent reviews appear at the top of each Section Index. The Home Page lists the five latest published reviews, the Section Index lists the past two months of reviews, and the Archive goes back to January 2001. The Disc Index lists all past reviews. Audiophile vinyl reviews are now included in the SACD/Hi-Res Section.
