Description

“Dorati pioneered the first stereo recordings of the complete Billy the Kid and (this) caused a sensation …for precision of detail and brilliance of colour, while the generous acoustics offered ambient warmth…The gunshots were and remain electrifying….(Penguin Guide 3 stars) “The Dorati performance of Rodeo is excellent” (Gramophone)
