Worlds  Greatest  Music   SR-1

The venture was hatched as a scheme to boost newspaper circulation by the Publishers Service Company, which contracted the production work to RCA-Victor. To keep costs low, RCA held rehearsals and remakes to a minimum and insisted on anonymity for their artists.

The first sets were announced in a nationwide newspaper campaign in the Autumn of 1938. Excellently recorded and pressed, these inexpensive sets were so successful that in 1940 a "World's Greatest Opera" series was added, which included uncredited performances by the likes of Eleanor Steber, Leonard Warren, and Rose Bampton. According to a New York Times report, only union musicians were used, and all agreed to waive their royalties.
