On booklet: The Golden Age Of Operetta. All lyrics are in English.
LPs are not banded: each record side is presented as a continuous performance ie. The World's Greatest Operettas, recorded and manufactured for Reader's Digest in Cyclophonic Miracle Sound, by The Radio Corporation Of America.
Recorded simultaneously on monophonic and stereophonic tape on three separate machines through 20 channels. Every record produced is cut from an original tape. No monitoring, copying or equalizing has taken place, in order to insure you the benefit of the beautiful, natural sound of the original performances.
Nine of these eighteen operettas, which feature Anna Moffo, have been reissued on compact disc (Reader's Digest Music 129C). This vinyl album comes as is, with noticeable signs of wear and tear to accompany its vintage age. May range in condition from near mint, to good, to mediocre condition. However, the actual vinyl records are in near mint condition, if not excellent overall. In any case, all photos are taken from the actual item up for sale.
Therefore, please use your best judgement in reviewing all details presented to ensure you like what you see. For albums that contain box sets, or multiple vinyl records please note that an example of the condition that reflects all containing items will generally be portrayed by only a small handful of photos due to photo count limitations. If only one single record from a box set is portrayed in the listing photos, one can rest assured knowing that the whole album comes in that same condition.Music By - Johann Strauss.
