Rather, likely, according to this website:http://members.aol.com/darrylhopkins/vi ... abels.html
Interesting link, I must agree with the comments about the variable phases of DG, but I feel his enthusiastic comments about Decca/London (I've only got personal experience of Deccas) could do with amplification.
During the 60's and early 70's, I don't believe anybody else even approached the musicality of many of the Decca releases. These were often produced with simple setups of two, or occasionally three, mikes and have a musicallity and spaciousness which I do not believe is possible with close up multi-mike, multi-track recordings. I certainly haven't heard anything in recent years which is comparible.
Regards and good listening
