2.0 out of 5 stars A little research, please, 26 Dec. 2003
By A Customer
This review is from: Verdi: Nabucco (Audio CD)
Without further comment on this bizarre and unsatisfying recording, it seems odd to me that the reviewer above makes such a point of its 1960's origins, when in fact it is clearly labeled as being released in 1983. Further, Dimitrova did not make her debut until 1966, and did not perform in any important venues outside Bulgaria until 1970. A bit more attention to fact would make this sort of drooling non-review a bit easier to take seriously.

What you appear to have missed is the rather important fact, Amazon, reuse product reviews for multiple versions of the same item, be that VHS, dvd, CD etc.

Hence the previous review not tallying with the actual product you yourself haven't even reviewed!

Peter says:
Several years later, but you, S. Coombs, seem not to get it. I point out quite clearly that Dimitrova did not appear outside Bulgaria until 1970. I thinks the chances or DG importing Cappuccilli, Domingo and Nesterenko to Bulgaria in the sixties to record with a completely (for the West) unknown Abigaille, or even to import that unkown Abigaille to Berlin for that matter, are nihil. I did actually review it ("this bizarre and unsatisfying recording"), albeit briefly, because I don't find it worth the effort. I did actually own this on vinyl back in, oh, say 1983.
