Chad Kassem has indeed done well with reissuing this series. Way to go Chad!! I plan to buy them all. A great start to a great series! This LP is pretty much everything I hoped it would be: great sound, flat, quiet pressing although I did have to return the first one I got because of a slight dish-warp and a very tasty package. The jacket has the same high- gloss finish as the Prestige mono series.
I don't know if that is period- accurate for this LP, but the the original Living Stereo titles that I have in my collection feature more of a matte finish like the Patsy Cline LP.
Minor quibble, though. Can't wait to get Pines and Pictures now. It was with great anticipation that I dropped the needle on Scheherazade, only to be greeted with annoying pops, crackles and ticks every few seconds. A trip to the vacuum record cleaning machine didn't help, nor did repeated hits on my industrial anti-static machine. No, the noise is pressed in. Amazingly, all three of these first albums had the same problem.
The Resphigi had fewer pops, but had a near continuous low-level crackle in the right channel through the very long quiet sections. Pictures at an Exhibition was more like the Scheherazade -- pop, crackle, tick, tick, crackle, pop. Other albums that arrived in the same order are fine, and very quiet, so it's not some problem with my system. Maybe it's time to slow down, and focus on the "Quality" in the record pressings. Can I really be that unlucky that the only three noisy discs would come to me?

Rimsky Korsakoff Rimsky-Korsakov. His costumes continue with the simplified, abstraction of the narrative. They are less reminiscent of the ornate, exotic harems the original ballet portrays and are instead gauzier and lightweight.
His choreography honors that of the original ballet in its sensuous waves and ripples, as well as its narrative. However, it is also modernized with contemporary, almost jazz-influenced, movements for both male and female characters. The sets and costumes were designed by Jerome Kaplan. They incorporate some elements directly from the original designs of Leon Bakst, but also strip some away.
Both mix ornate and more streamlined designs depending on the characters and settings for the scenes. Critical reviews of the work can be difficult to find.
