Strictly Limited To 900 Copies To Celebrate Decca's 90th Birthday!
Housed In Gold & Black Embossed 10" Circular Tin!
The large-scale musical by Frederick Delius was completed in 1903-1904 and first performed in 1906. The compositional work is an adaptation from a section of Walt Whitman's compilation "Leaves of Grass, Sea-Drift".
Roy Henderson performed the music with the New English Symphony Orchestra and Chorus in 1929.
Sea Drift is housed in a beautiful, gold and black embossed 10" circular tin, which replicates the majesty of that early label a bust of Beethoven presiding over the bold claim 'THE SUPREME RECORD'. Each set has a numbered fact sheet, and the records themselves are protected by die cut foam discs. 90 years later, Sea Drift is a perfect souvenir for the labels special birthday.
