    A comment on the FLAT EDGE vinyl profile. ALL reissue vinyl should come without a raised edge.

        Coming in 2018: Ten Everest titles, each a 2LP 45RPM release

        Among Classic Records' highlight accomplishments — before the label sold in 2010 to Acoustic Sounds — was unlocking the audio majesty of the Everest 35mm magnetic film recordings on a groundbreaking reissue series.
        Everest Records 35mm magnetic film recordings
        Rarely has a record label been so influential and so associated with trend-setting recording techniques for its time as Everest Records. Hollywood sound man Harry Belock and audio dealer-engineer Bert Whyte started the label as the stereo era dawned. They acquired 3-channel 35mm magnetic film recording equipment in 1959, and through the early '60s recorded in this fashion, as did Mercury Records. Unlike the Mercury 35mm recordings that were praised for their fidelity on LP, Everest LPs were criticized for their lackluster sound and noisy surfaces. Classic Records owner Mike Hobson reasoned that those LPs were the result of poor transfers and poor pressings, not the recordings themselves, which were patterned after the legendary Mercury recordings.
        Classic's "Flat Profile" 200-gram pressings and mastering revealed the sonic detail and lower-range fidelity that 35mm recordings had always offered, but previously failed to deliver on LP. Now, Classic Records, and Quality Record Pressings are returning to Everest's phenomenal catalog to reissue 10 titles meticulously remastered for Classic Records, making these gems available again for audiophiles to enjoy. Acoustic Sounds and Analogue Productions are going to release these titles on the Classic Records label, as the jackets and the mastering was done by them.These LPs will be limited to roughly 500 copies of each title. We are going to press them at Quality Record Pressings using the same flat-edge profile and same high quality standard as our lauded reissue series from Blue Note, Prestige and others.

        An extremely limited edition of 50 gold foil numbered series subscriptions will be available. Series subscribers enjoy free shipping and this is the only way to receive numbered copies. Call us toll-free at 1-888-926-2564 or email subscriptions@acousticsounds.comfor more information or to sign up. Don’t miss out!
        35mm magnetic film yielded major advantages over standard 1/4" recording tape. The film tape width accommodated three channels, each of which was as wide as the standard 1/4" recording tape, yielding stereo recordings in which the usual "background noise" was noticeably lower than normal. The 35mm base material on which the magnetic oxide was coated, was five times thicker than that of conventional tape, permitting the recording of extremely high sound intensities without the danger of layer to layer sound "print through." Like cinematic film, 35mm tape has sprocket holes along the edges, affording an unprecendented smoothness of motion — extremely low wow and flutter.
        The Westrex Corporation built special equipment to Everest's specifications in order to accomplish these advantages. This equipment included the use of special recording heads and amplifiers that afforded complete wide band frequency response in recording.
        The Everest Records reissue challenge — Bernie Grundman and Len Horowitz on board
        Classic Records retained Len Horowitz from History of Recorded Sound in Hollywood, to meticulously restore a vintage Westrex 1551 tape machine, and build special playback electronics superior to any others used previously to play back the original 35mm tapes. The Westrex, with new playback heads, was matched to the "all tube" cutting system at Bernie Grundman Mastering in Hollywood. With Horowitz running the playback machine and Grundman mastering the 3-track 35mm tapes, the job of transferring from the edited 35mm session tapes began. In many cases the tapes had to be degassed for weeks at a time before they could be played back without shedding an excess of oxide that would gum up the three track heads and require the side to be recut again and again to get a clean pass. Hobson, Horowitz and Grundman worked for three years to bring 20 of the 26 titles to full release with six titles, which were cut, remaining unissued.
        The Classic Records /Everest Records reissues — Highest quality, top-of-the-line pressing by Quality Record Pressings!
        Everest provided an outlet for some of the greatest American and British conductors and orchestras of the 20th Century, including Leopold Stokowski, Adrian Boult, Malcolm Sargent, the London Philharmonic and the London Symphony Orchestra, as well as the New York Philharmonic (performing under the nomenclature of the Stadium Symphony Orchestra). Here's why these are going to be the best versions of these records ever pressed!
        • 45 RPM editions! — Grundman cut the Classic reissues at both 33 and 45 RPM; the 45 RPM versions have never been issued.
        • Quality Record Pressings 200-gram flat profile LPs — These records are pressed with a flat-edge, no groove-guard flat profile, like the originals. The flat edge refers to the absence of a raised, beaded lip on the outer edge of the record, providing a flat playing surface — and no incline — on your turntable, meaning your cartridge comes that much closer to perfectly tracking the groove!
        Quality Record Pressings' quality is legendary and these flat profile 200-gram platters will look and sound exceptional!
        Each 2LP set comes with an original jacket and an Everest Records branded jacket showing photos of each reissue title. The two LPs are packaged in a protective clear sleeve.

          I have the Classic/Everest 33 1/3 rpm release of the Khatchaturian Concerto for Piano and Orchestra, one of my favorites. But I'm not impressed with the recording or the pressing. It sounds to me like I'm sitting in the back row of the hall. At times it sounds thin. And there seems to be a lot of surface noise on this pressing, which is really surprising! I might have just got a bad pressing. I'm tempted to buy the 45rpm, but I'm concerned I'm going to get the same "last row" sound, because I think that's in the recording. Has anyone else listened to both releases (33.3 and 45)? Is the 45 markedly better?

            I bought the first 4 Everest 45 RPM titles but was not impressed. I stopped buying them.
