The London Symphony Orchestra (LSO), founded in 1904, is the oldest of London's symphony orchestras. It was set up by a group of players who left Henry Wood's Queen's Hall Orchestra because of a new rule requiring players to give the orchestra their exclusive services. The LSO itself later introduced a similar rule for its members. From the outset, the LSO was organised on co-operative lines, with all players sharing the profits at the end of each season. This practice continued for the orchestra's first four decades.
Following on from the highly successful Classic Americana, comes the sequel Classic Americana 2. Chock full of sounds from the west coast, the 2CD collection includes U.S. superstars The Beach Boys, Bob Dylan, The Doors, Fleetwood Mac, Simon & Garfunkel and more!
