    a real treat to listen to.

    I'm confused! Some of the Amazon reviewers say it is the 1953 Keilberth Bayreuth set, and others say it is the Furtwängler 1950 La Scala set. Which one is it?

    ZYX Classic label Ring uses live Keilberth 1952 Rheingold, 1952 Gotterdamerung, 1953 Siegfried from Bayreuth and 1954 studio Furtwangler Die Walkure with WP orchestra

    We have been discussing this in Wagner thread starting with 184 post, Alma purchased this also.....

    Mono sound is very good as Itullian says

  3. Thanks Itullian, Jephtha thanked for this post

    DA is right on as always.
    the mono sound is terrific
    voices and instruments are heard equally and very clearly

    Yes libretto is included in booklet that fits inside the jewel case, no slipcover.
    As with all Originals series the sound has been remastered

    I still miss LPs. Some of the covers were so beautiful! It was like having your own private art collection.
