    Berganza for me also (Varviso conductor)
    I think this was first stereo recording of this work, very lively and spirited sound which fits the story line

    Mine is the older cover art:

    paaaaaaass
    It's the greed of huge companies and huge organizations which control life in a kind of a brutal way ... It's gotten worse and worse, somehow, because physical science has given us more and more terrible deadly weapons, and the human spirit has been destroyed in so many cases, so what's the use of having the most powerful country in the world if we have killed the soul.

    A very slight edge to Tebaldi (Gavazzeni conductor)
    I purchased all of the Tebaldi/Del Monaco releases I could find, this is a very good one as this style fits Tebaldi nicely

    A strong 2nd choice is the very cheap used Scotto/Domingo version, Milnes very strong here in his role, either one is great choice
