 Presto CD, Presto CD - Gramophone Awards Collection

Presto CD - Gramophone Awards CollectionContinuing our series of 'Presto CDs' this week we bring back 35 discs from the Decca, DG and Philips series 'Gramophone Awards Collection' - some of which have either been unavailable on CD for some time, or only available as part of larger boxes.

Manufactured by us here at Presto Classical under licence from the original record labels, Presto CD produces a finished product almost indistinguishable from the original factory pressed version. Each disc includes full booklets and inlays, whilst the audio, (sourced directly from the factory) is 100% identical to that found on the original CD version.

Presto CDs play on all standard CD players.
