    Went to John King Books in Detroit and got this on CD for only $2.50 and in VG condition but no booklet. Cheapest I can find online is $99 for a CD. And I had been scoping this out before.

    Since I discovered La Cenerentola a couple years ago I have only had one recording (Abbado/Berganza).
