TURN-ONS AND TURN-OFFS IN CURRENT HOME ENTERTAINMENT RELEASES : Excellent Good Fair Poor : COMPACT DISCS

June 03, 1986|MARC SHULGOLD

"USA." Felix Slatkin conducts the Concert Arts Symphonic Band. EMI Angel. (Original recording: analog. Digital remix.) Here's a new wrinkle in the CD-versus-LP debate. In 1979, Angel issued this rousing, Sousa-heavy collection of patriotic marches on a 12" audiophile 45-rpm disc as part of its "Sonic Series." So which sounds best today? It's a standoff--each version, at proper volume, could raise the dead. But on the CD there's room for four more stirring cuts. Recommended for those who like to start off their mornings with a bang. But close the windows first.
