This is the classic recording/performance so no hesititation in recommending it, but I always follow
the opera by reading the accompanying libretto. This version is very cheap but comes without the libretto and it's
proving very difficult to find something suitable on the web.
Otherwise, the one to buy.

I love this recording since long, the old vinyl is getting a bit scratchy, so this is a bargain for people like me... The best singers of this time, Karajan in his best years, vital and lively. Strauss at his best. Highly recommended, not least at this price! A real bargain.
