Among Classic Records’ highlight accomplishments — before the label sold in 2010 to Acoustic Sounds — was unlocking the audio majesty of the Everest 35mm magnetic film recordings on a groundbreaking reissue series. Now, return with us, as Classic Records by Analogue Productions returns this vintage audiophile collection to its rightful glory.
Everest LPs through the early 1960s were recorded on 3-channel 35mm magnetic film recording equipment. 35mm magnetic film yielded greater fidelity and less noise than standard 1/4″ recording tape. The Westrex Corporation built special equipment to Everest’s specifications to accomplish these advantages.
Fast forward to today: Classic Records by Analogue Productions is resurrecting this collection through an initial 10-title reissue series cut directly from the original 35mm tapes through Classic’s “all-tube” cutting system by Bernie Grundman. Grundman cut the Classic Records reissues at both 33 and 45 RPM – the 45 RPM versions have never been reissued!
