The transfers of jazz recordings from that period done by JRT Davies for
labels such as Frog, Hep, and Retrieval sound superb on my equipment.
Especially the Victors.
I haven't heard quite such good transfers of any classical material,
although Andrew Walter at EMI has done a few very good ones recently for
the "Great Recordings of the Century" series.
