Reviews

"Special praise - and we can't say this often enough - to Nimbus for the accuracy, and elegance of its productions ... The re-mastering is just miraculous."  Suono magazine, Italy

"The transfers and remastering from the old 78s has been carried out with obvious care and affection. One soon forgets the slight background hiss and crackle in admiring the open sound quality, with its judiciously added natural resonance and somehow a complete lack of the incipient distortion that marred the EMI reissue in a few places. The performance remains treasurable."  Peter Branscombe, Hi-Fi News & Record Review
