MercLivingPresenceVol.3Our July drawings for all visitors here is for Volume 3 of the highly-acclaimed Mercury Living Presence  boxed sets which together cover nearly all of the recordings made by Mercury during their “Golden Age” audiophile recording history – 53 separate CDs, with reproductions of the original LP covers on each sleeve. Here is a list of all the recordings. Mostly remastered by Wilma Cozart in the 1990s using the original three-channel analog tapes. Includes several great mono and Philips CDs which used Mercury’s micing approach. Ten of the albums are on CD for the first time. See our recent review of the huge set of CDs.  To be considered you must register this month using our simple form here. More details on this drawing and the winner of last month’s drawing will be announced on our Editorial Page.
