Specializing in classical music, Arkiv knows the releases their customers are looking for. From time to time, they see a market for something where the original label does not see profit in a reissue. In those cases, Arkiv leases or otherwise obtains a master recording from the original label and with their full support and permission (these are not "needle drops"). Arkiv does their best to recreate the original recording, including the cover art, and they then issue high quality CD-Rs on demand.
I've never been a huge fan of commercial CD-Rs, but ArkivCDs tend to be of a higher quality than some of the schlock CD reissues coming from some overseas companies. The people I know who've bought ArkivCDs are generally happy with their purchase. And, at the moment, if you've been longing for a CD copy of "Wonderland Of Christmas", this is the best you're going to do. Release date is October 25th and you can pre-order now direct from ArkivMusic.
