  • Gaite Parisianne VICS vs LSC

    RCA reissued Gaite Parisianne on VICS. Is this the same performance as LSC-1817, or is the same performance as
    the later issue the second version Fiedler did on LSC????

      The second album is LSC-2267 from 1959. It also includes the Khachaturian Gayne Ballet Suite. The first Gaite Parisienne was one of the very first stereo albums that RCA recorded, back in 1954 at the dawn of commercial stereo. This was four years before RCA (and the other record companies) would release the first stereo records. However, RCA did release stereo albums on tape (at first 2 track stereo at 7.5ips). I have both one of those stereo tapes (quite excellent sound) and one of the early records (in one of the favored stampers 10S, 10S). After Harry Pearson put the LSC-1817 on his TAS Superdisc list, the prices went through the roof for used copies. I paid over $100 for my copy (at a time when I hadn't paid that much for more than a handful of records.) What made it particularly scarce was that the LSC-2267 version came out just a year after the LSC-1817 on vinyl. There is some nice back and forth on the Steve Hoffman Forum on this record and different stampers. BTW, the Victrola was a remastering (as most all Victrolas were), rather than just using the existing mothers or stampers.

      Not sure why they released a second recording so soon after the first one (of course it was 5 years after the actual recording was made.) RCA did the same (with the same conductor and orchestra) for the first three of their early stereo albums. These rerecordings included the Reiner Also Sprach Zarathustra, the Munch Daphnis et Chloe, in addition to the Fiedler Gaite Parisienne. RCA did rerelease the original albums of these three, as well as many other original RCA Living Stereo albums on their bargain Victrola label, starting a few years after the originals were released. The Daphnis et Chloe is a bit of an oddity because the Victrola reissue was of the two Suites made from the ballet, rather than the ballet itself. I understand that the suites came from the same recording session as the original album.
