Klassic Downloads - Symphonic Favorites - 3rd Series               

This page introduces a third set of restorations by Klassic Haus, available as downloads only. These recordings are a step above the budget Garage Sale Classics items, and are available at a great price in both 320kbps MP3 ($4.00) and high-quality FLAC ($5.00) downloads. Recording information is included in the download (as is available) in a .pdf file, just as with regular Klassic Haus and Garage Sale Classics downloads. The recordings in the 3rd series are from excellent Reader's Digest stereo LP sets "Mood Music", and "Eric Robinson's Music For You," both released in the UK only. The sets used for this series was transcribed by my UK colleague, John Whitmore. High-quality MP3 samples of each volume are found below the purchase tabs.
