I hope that you will agree that these transfers are much superior to those made by EMI, and the album that I produced for Pearl, with the unsurpassable and essential transfer engineering skills of the great Seth B. Winner will convince you that this set of transfers is prefarerable to the EMI set. I am embarrassed to "toot my own horn", but Don Pablo was my friend and mentor, and this set is the first of a series of tributes that I intend to produce to honor the memory ot this, the greatest of all string players. The first truly realistic transfers of these discs, and the first transfer in the choronological order in which the various compositions were recorded.
