Some of you may be aware of Devialet - the French electronics company pioneering stereo amplification design combined with beautiful aesthetics. This expertise has led them on an ambitious project to bring back to life exceptional recordings on the verge of extinction. Devialet teamed up with record label Fondamenta and developed a restoration process called "Phoenix Mastering", allowing for the precise recovery of analog recordings, using the Devialet Expert Pro system.
The result? A unique collection of stunning releases pressed in one of the world's best factories. Only 900 copies of each release have been released, I have been fortunate to acquire four of these releases:-
Dave Brubeck Quartet – Live At The Kurhaus 1967
Oscar Peterson Trio – Live At The Concertgebouw 1961
Sarah Vaughan – Live At Laren Jazz Festival 1975
Bill Evans Trio – Live At Hilversum 1968
