    I'm just breaking into Lott's recordings recently. Guess I need to hear her 4LS as well.
    You should try the Popp and Fleming recoding from Daphe first.

    Already have complete Daphnes with Popp and Gueden. Popp is the winner again. Fleming is a red flag for me, ever since her first 4LS, have not heard the second. But I like her career repertory such as Rusalka.
