Product Description

CD84419 EJS 170, 'Potpourri No. 5'

Here is another addition to our EJS project. I have uploaded them as received, with no attempt to alter the sound or correct the pitch partly because it is sometimes hard to know if an artist transposed an aria out of choice. The first five items are from met broadcasts all of which have appeared complete (often in better sound) on operashare before. The other 6 items are more unusual, with Marjorie Lawrence's Salome finale being particularly interesting in my view on her first visit to the UK after the war. 160 kps mono

Important Information!!!
USA Telephone (404) 200-4776 We sell only opera recordings. The recordings are sent to you in paper sleeves with no tray card or inserts, just the raw discs with printed labels. These recordings are of nonprofessional quality that are in the public domain. The quality of these old opera recordings is not very good and they are meant for collectors and educational purposes only. Most of them are 30 or 40 years old, so they might be blurry, colors faded, and not sound very good, but they might not be available elsewhere. Please note that most of our recordings do not have tracks, they have 1 long track per disc.
