Like the two other reviewers, I loved this performance of La Perichole from the vinyl highlights version I listened to in my childhood in the fifties, and I was surprised and delighted to find that after all these years I could get the full version on CD. I also agree with the others that the sound quality is terrible, but it is worth it just to be able to listen to the late lamented Cyril Ritchard again: What a man! What a voice! I could hardly resist it!

This is a recording of an actual performance and the audio quality is poor. I'm very disappointed because I bought an LP disc of a studio performance of this about sixty years ago which was wonderful. This disc was played so often that the track was almost worn through. I've been hoping for a re-issue for years.
This does have the advantage of being a full recording as opposed to the highlights on the LP, but the audio quality is so poor that it is not worth listening to.
What a pity! There isn't a good DVD version of the opera either.
If any record company has the original master of the LP and can issue it on CD I'd certainly buy it.

The production is as wonderful as I remember from the 50's when I was a child and loved Cyril Ritchard. I have the LP, which shows how much I loved it: terribly worn. I was pleased when I saw this available. I would have given it 5 stars but for the fact that the fidelity is not as good as I would have wished. Still, I am very happy with the CD.
