CRITIC REVIEW:

“These VRCS issues really are the Rolls-Royce of reissues. Complete discographical details are included (even down to the speeds used for each transfer), there are detailed notes on each of the 24 singers, and there are photographs of all but two of them. Seth Winner’s transfers are also uniformly excellent….I think his transfers rank alongside those of Ward Marston, Andrew Rose and Roger Beardsley….”
