Mercury Living Presence Series (50500-)

[Living Presence Logo A]

Living Presence” series was one of Mercury labels, for Classical music. Like its series name, it gives us "a living presence" sound. Among all Mercury releases, this “Living Presence” series may be the most famous among audiophiles, and thus much of this release includes so expensive, hard-to-find records in the second-hand market.

Among them, the most famous ones are the legendary Stereo releases, a high-fidelity “FR press” Stereo platters, most of which were released between 1958-1960. Another famous ones may be “35mm Magnetic Film Recording” in the 1960s.

It is surprising and interesting that monaural issues are less expensive than stereo issues of the same recordings. It's unbelievable in the area of Jazz, Popular etc.
