[ARSCLIST] Fortissimo

Anyone remember, or even hear of, a label called FORTISSIMO produced by Riverside in 1961? Super-quiet surfaces (wonder how they managed that? Riverside never turned out a quiet disc in their lives), discs cut from the inside out (changer owners must have loved that), master tapes recorded at 60 IPS "with the heads oriented horizontally" (whaaaaa..?), a 400hz alignment tone, and repertoire such as Racing Cars, Jets, Pipe Organ (miked from inside, I think) and Banjo Polkas.

Amazing what turns up in some of these old audio magazines that I've never run across in over 45 years of record collecting.
