Did the RCA Red Seal recordings which were recorded by Decca in Europe (e.g. John Culshaw's 1963 recording of "Carmen" which was released on RCA Red Seal's Soria Series in 1964) ever have Dynagroove applied to them? If so, can you give an example of one?

I am currently chasing down a copy of what I believe to be the most difficult to find of all Dynagroove albums...Questo e' il Dynagroove (RCA DDD 33) which was released in Italy in 1966. It is a mix of the artists on the original " This Is Dynagroove" from 1963 (RCA PRS-140) with some Italian artists that were not featured on the US release (notably Ennio Morricone, Miranda Martino, Ferruccio Tagliavini and the SAT Choir). I will let you know when it arrives from Italy and how it sounds. Stay tuned!!!

Just got a copy of the 1963 RCA Victor LP "The Best of Al Hirt". Simply unbelievable sound contained in this little vinyl platter from 50 years ago. Play Cotton Candy (Side 2, Track 4) on a really good stereo system and get chills thru your body. Separation, imaging, spatial arrangement of instruments and voices, and the characteristic natural sound of woodwinds and the trumpet are remarkable.

No problem, Robert. I enjoyed the 35mm discussion, too. So I'm as guilty of being off-topic as anyone :)

Steve, I apologize for hijacking this Dynagroove site and shifting the topic to Command and 35mm film recording. I will address my future comments toward RCA Victor Dynagroove recording. (Can I sneak in an RCA Living Stereo/RCA Camden/RCA Red Seal comment every once in a while????)HaHaHa!!!

If anyone is interested, the 1963 Reprise release of "The Concert Sinatra" with Nelson Riddle and 60 piece orchestra was recorded on 35mm film. This album was also released as a half-speed master version by Mobile Fidelity on vinyl, and as recently as this year Concord released a fully-remastered CD version. It is considered a landmark album by many. The original sessions were recorded in a Hollywood sound studio, which is probably why the 35mm film format was used. I believe the recordings were made over a 3 day period at Stage 7 of the Samuel Goldwyn Studios.
