About

‘Phase 4 Stereo’ was created in 1961 as an American subsidiary of Decca, and steered to success by New Yorker Tony D’Amato – a man who had the amazing ability to attract the greatest artists of the 1960s and 1970s to the label.  The cream of orchestral players gathered to make the recordings, among them the principals from the leading orchestras of the day.

Phase 4 became quickly known for its characteristic sound: warm, rich and clean, and expanded the scope and spectrum of recorded sound.  Using Decca’s pioneering 20-channel mixing desk, the label aimed to deliver an immediacy of sound to give listeners an unrivalled listening experience through state-of-the-art recordings, and produced recordings with an unprecedented sense of spatial realism and movement.

A stereophonic plethora of repertoire of pure nostalgia is included in this set.  Phase 4 was one of the leading purveyors of what was known as ‘nice ‘n’ easy’ repertoire.  This 40-CD set comprising 50 original albums is representative of the variety of the lighter vein of music Phase 4 recorded.  Everything from the exotic percussion of Latin music to TV themes and spectacular film scores.  This set is a rich and rewarding treasure-trove of music waiting to be rediscovered.
