Analogue Productions announces a new reissue-series with great Decca-titles. Great news für music lovers! - Unfortunately only 9 titels so far, some of them appeared in good digital versions re-issued by other labels (fim, Universal Japan).
I hope, the series will be successful und continued with additional titels!!!

From the Acoustic Sounds website. Pre-order, Analogue Productions, SACDs, most recently added. Since the Oistrakh and Argenta titles show a November 2015 shipping date, it's probably safe to assume that at least those two discs have actually been pressed and are ready to ship.

Thanks for collating that. The discs pop up, but I'm having a heck of a time getting the site to show them all.

The Mehta discs are likely pre-orders for me, and it looks like The Planets will include the John Williams tracks too (note that tracks 8-13 are listed in the recording date info for that disc). And I like what they're doing with the Mahler - putting the whole performance on one SACD, and making disc 2 CD only. I wish more 2-disc sets did that.

I would love to see them reissue some of the rarer Japanese Decca titles like the Curzon/Szell Brahms 1st concerto and the Maag/Mendelssohn Scottish/Sommernachtstraum in SACD. One can only hope!

Those would indeed be great. Of all the offerings for now, I think only the Oistrakh set has an exclamation mark attached to it, in my tired-out mind.

I don' want to sound ungrateful, but it seems to me that the team at analogue productions used the same poor title selection that they did in their Living Stereo series. Many of the deck at titles announced are still available and Japanese SHM-SACD pressings such as the Argenta/Rimsky Korsakov disc and the Ansermet Three-cornered hat. Of the titles listed, the Krips Schubert and the Curzon Trout quintet interest me as well as the Oistrakh/Bruch. Another welcome Decca reissue would be the Maag Mozart disc with the Concerto for four orchestras. It has wonderful definition even on the Decca Legends RBCD incarnation.

Wow, Mahler 3 on SACD! Has this been done before?

Post by wolfE October 29, 2015 (9 of 27)
On my buying list will be: The "Spanish" Music discs with Argenta and de Burgos, Mahler 3 and the great Schubert with Krips.

My personal wishlist for the future would include
Peer Gynt with Fjeldstad
Nutcracker and Petrouchka with Ansermet
Romeo and Juliet (Maazel)
... and of course many operas (Aida, Tosca and Boheme with Karajan, Eugen Onegin, Don Carlos, Hänsel und Gretel, Tannhäuser with Solti and others.
But I fear that operas are too special and expensive for such a re-release series.

I do not buy too many re-issues, I am mainly interested in modern recordings but there is one performance on Decca that goes straight to the top of my wish list, it is the last Decca recording of Granados Goyescas performed by Alicia de Larrocha, it was recorded in 1977 and was available on London 411958-2 (ADD), the pianist re-recorded Goyescas for RCA in 1989 (DDD), I prefer the London recording.

Not sure if this will ever show up on SACD but who knows, I hope Analogue Productions is reading this.
