This special 2 CD collection is the final volume in a mini-series presenting fifty years of great voices on record. All the material contained here has been previously released in the Nimbus Prima Voca series. Digital recordings from the original 78 rpm discs, transferred using a large, custom-built horn gramophone and thorn needles, with the resulting sound recorded as though it were a live performance.
