RCA 1s stampers are worth seeking out, but can get overvalued if bought at full collectors retail.  I find plum label Victrola reissues of collectable LSC records to often be available in early stampers and great values.  For grins, go to Ebay and type in VICS 1s and see what pops up.  Often $8-12 for 1s vinyl... usually an excellent value.  But their prices have been climbing for several years now.
Here's one that I know to be an very fine pressing for really cheap...  https://www.ebay.com/itm/193684319735?hash=item2d187c2df7:g:jrsAAOSwD75fb1Ib
Wow.  Looking deeper, I see that their prices have usually doubled from where they were a year or two ago.

Thanks, Rich. I do have the 1/8 jack on a Mac laptop, but a lightning connector on my iPad. They are also 2 different operating systems. That gives me a head start

Fiddler on the Roof - Original Broadway Cast Recording



RCA Victor LP

This was the first Broadway production I ever attended. My parents took me to see it when I was 8 years old.

It is also the record that opened my eyes to the difference among pressing of a given album, I this particular copy is a 1S pressing that I found in t thrift shop in great condition for the whopping price of 69 cents. I have several other RCA copies of this exact album and none of them come close to this one in terms of SQ. I have a number of other 1S pressings of different RCA albums that I don't think sound particularly better than records made from other stampers, so I can't say that all 1S pressing are the better by far, but this one sure is.

The precision of the sound staging and overall "realness" of the presentation is head and shoulders over all of the other pressings I have, including the 180g reissue that was released a few years ago. I don't know why it is better, but I am just enjoying the fact that it is.

Dave, please accept mu condolences. We will keep Gayle's sister and her family in our prayers.

As for the business don't give it a second thought. Take care of your family. At a time like this that is all that matters.

And quite frankly anyone who doesn't understand that does not deserve the privilege of owning one of your products.
