Years ago I came into a sizable collection of original RCA Victor "shaded dog" vinyl pressings for dirt cheap. The vinyl on all them was near mint and the jackets in most cases were pristine. A few showed some slight signs of shelf wear.
Today I pulled out this brilliant 1959 Rossini Overtures recording by Fritz Reiner and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. It took my breath away.
If you enjoy historical classical music recordings then I highly recommend that you check them out. Most recordings are in FLAC format in 24bit/96KHz and a growing number of them are in 24bit/192KHz. I convert the files to WAV and then use discWelder software to author a DVD-Audio disc and then put a copy on my music server.

Last night I brought this up on my TV and stereo using my blue ray blayer. It was good. Joey Di Franchesco (SP?) was also on it. The trail u-tube provides led me to, another B3 player, Billy Preston playing Summertime from Porgy and Bess:
