Releases like this make me happy. That's because vinyl didn't die...because these amazing albums have returned for a new generation to savor. I enjoy classical music, but I didn't know before this release that I'd developed an appreciation for the opera's of Bach. Never before have I heard them sound so good. That's what this release does: It lets you experience music you didn't know you loved.

Archiv's production standards are high. The discs feel sturdy and perhaps heavier than the reported 180g. The slips are of good quality. Unlike other new discs, they aren't coated in dust or thin slivers of paper. The sleeves are reproductions of the originals. The box closes tightly and creates a bit of a vacuum which makes it slightly harder to open and close, but hopefully bodes well for the future health of the discs.

If you are a person who is interested in vinyl or someone looking for classical music with the fidelity that can only come from analogue, this is an extremely worthwhile release. I heartily recommend it.
