Re: [ARSCLIST] Fortissimo-BINGO!

Dear DL-

Artist: Ray Barretto Title: Pachanga In Percussion Matrix #: XK 8007 Format:Stereo (Plays from the inside out.) Vinyl Compound & Color: Polymax/Red Yes it has the 400hz alignment tone... I can't speak for any other title but musically this record is a homerun!

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.
