Continuing to explore this remarkable collection of mono RCA recordings, I am delighted to be able to offer a very large selection of RCA's rather obscure and short-lived classical Bluebird catalog. The series was initiated in November of 1952, when RCA ran an advertisement in the Schwann catalog (and doubtless elsewhere as well) introducing the series with a generous selection of about thirty new releases. As things transpired, the entire series ran to fewer than 100 issues, all of them deleted no later than February of 1957. So the longest that any of these issues lasted in print was about four and a half years, and many had much shorter life-spans.

The classical Bluebirds were an early example of what we eventually came to call a "mid-priced" series. They had a retail price of $2.98 - nestled neatly in between the budget-label Camdens at $1.98 and the full-priced Red Seals at $3.98 (as of the mid-50's).

As you will see from the listings on the following pages, they comprised a fascinating mixed bag of:

(1) material licensed from EMI (the most famous EMI artists - Furtwangler, Menuhin, etc. - were consigned to the premium-price LHMV series; the Bluebirds became the province of musicians RCA apparently judged to be of less interest in the USA: Malko, Dobrowen, Sargent, Harry Blech, etc.; also - rather surpisingly I would have thought - Barbirolli);

(2) Reissues of Red Seal 78-rpm releases which for some reason they chose not to release on Camden (Stock, Defauw, Dorati, Sevitzky, Golschmann, etc.);

(3) Brand new domestic recordings which RCA elected not to issue on full-price Red Seal (Leinsdorf/Robin Hood Dell; Dorfmann; very early Janis; American Art Quartet).
As it has happened, some of the artists which RCA judged to be of lesser interest at the time now have very dedicated followings (Morini, Cherkassky, Moiseiwitsch, Celibidache, Haendel, etc.) and these short-lived recordings are often the most sought-after of their domestic issues.. There are also some delightful oddities which are true collector's items - off-the-beaten-path projects which RCA must have thought were worth the risk, but not at full price: a violin recital by Norman Carol; a choral collection by the Augustana College Choir; a vocal recital by Carol Smith; a piano disc shared by Nicolai Medtner and Halina Stefanska. I hope you will enjoy browsing this unusual collection as much as I have!
764. LBC-1001: FRANCK - Symphony in d. Leinsdorf/Robin Hood Dell Orchestra of Philadelphia. [strong performance] B+(jacket has rather ugly tape repair on spines) 10.00

766. LBC-1003: BEETHOVEN - Violin Concerto. Ida Haendel; Kubelik/PO. [Due to its rarity, I have graded this copy VERY conservatively. Most plays very well (B++ to A-), but light ticks from small blemishes intrude occasionally and there are six loud ticks at the start of side 2 (before the violin enters). There is what appears to be an autograph in magic marker on the back cover; it is clearly not Kubelik's, but it does not look like Haendel either.] B(but see preceding comments) 45.00

1025.*VICS-1435: GLUCK - Orfeo ed Euridice (orchestral music). Monteux/Rome Opera. [I don't believe the complete opera was ever issued in stereo on LP, though a single disc of excerpts was; this rather obscure 1976 issue from sessions in 1957 is something of an oddity!] [Pink; 1S/1S] A- 12.00
