Hybrid Stereo SACD!

Most classical devotees know that Espana! features legendary Spanish conductor Ataulfo Argenta leading the London Symphony Orchestra in a program of so-called "Spanish" blockbusters. But, ironically, only one piece is penned by a Spanish composer (Granados, "Danza Espanola") while the others are by a Russian (Rimsky Korsakov, "Capriccio Espagnol"), German (Moszkowski, "5 Spanish Dances"), and Frenchman (Chabrier, "España"). The LP version was initially issued in the United States as one of the index recordings of London Records' vaunted "blueback" series, known for its demonstration-quality sound. This Hybrid SACD plays in both CD and SACD players, as well as all SACD-compatible DVD players.

"The original Decca LP entitled Espana, which contains Rimsky Korsakov's Capriccio Espagnol, Granados' Andalusia, Chabrier's Espania, and Five Spanish Dances by Moszkowski played by the London Symphony Orchestra conducted by Ataulfo Argenta was designed to be a sonic showpiece. The performances are all excellent, but not at all garish or overdone..." - Arthur Lintgren, The Absolute Sound, January 2019
