Hawaiian Sunset - Arthur Lyman

Hawaiian Sunset
The Sounds Of Arthur Lyman
HIFIRECORD R807
1959

Available from online vendors so I will not be posting a sample. Presented here to share the cover.

Also released, according to the sticker as seen above on the second image, in stereo. The pressing came inside of the same jacket featuring the mono catalog number.

From the back cover: This recording was miked by three Austrian made AKG microphones and recorded by a custom built Ampex three channel Stereophonic magnetic tape recorder using 1/2" recording tape. Cutting of both the stereophonic and monaural disc was done by Westrex cutting heads and a Sully atomically variable pitch blade in connection with specially designed amplifiers. Exact engineering, painstaking processing and careful quality control make possible nil distortion, 16 to 20,000 CPS frequency range and noise level of minus 60 DB. Pressings are custom pure-virgin vinyl. This recording is also available on Stereophonic HIFIRECORD and pre-recorded HIFITAPE for stereophonic playback.
