Indisputably, the most legendary LP label of Germany’s post war time is MPS – the music production in the Black Forest. Produced between 1958 and 1983 were at first under the label SABA and later MPS recordings in the field of jazz, classic and entertainment which up until this very day claim to be of incomparable quality. Oscar Peterson’s piano or Friedrich Gulda’s classic recordings are merely two of outstanding examples for soundtrack documents, which have meanwhile become a music history. Extensive information under Label.
SABA and MPS recordings have meanwhile been released by Universal on CDs. Brand new MPS records are no longer available on the market. MPS label collectors and friends as well as fans of quality vinyl records will now receive the one-time opportunity to purchase MPS LPs from the estate of the late MPS owner, Hans-Georg Brunner-Schwer.
