    Sometimes I think so, then another one pops up that I want to hear.

    Found a sealed copy of the Karajan/Dresden Meistersinger on eBay. Bought it for 14 bucks.

    You know my answer to that one!

    Listening to Siegfried from Bayreuth 1976 at the moment. Very good.

    I have gone from having hardly any to buying one every week for the last month. It is a little disconcerting.

    I have been reading the book Wagner Without Fear and consider it the best book for anyone wishing to get over their initial resistance to Wagner.

    Just picked up 2 great bargains - Janowski’s second ring and Thielemann’s second.

    I did not know Thielemann had a second one. I recently made a mental note that Thielemann might be a good one to get but now I have further research to do.

    We need a table showing all the complete Ring cycles, conductors, principal cast members, date, whether live, concert, or studio recorded, etc. In other words, a 1000-page guide to Ring cycles. There is a lot of info on Wikipedia but it is spread over 5 discographies and not necessarily up to date and does not include ALL the information.

    I' a little confused. Do you mean Thielemann's Vienna or Bayreuth Ring?
    Also Janowski's RCA or Pentatone Ring?
    When all else fails, listen to Thick as a Brick.

    Is the 2008 Bayreuth the first or second?

    Forgive me if I’ve muddled things and caused some confusion. Some years ago I bought Thielemann’s Bayreuth. In the last few years I noticed the Vienna one and assumed it came after the Bayreuth. Anyway, I’ve just acquired the Vienna!

    Regarding Janowski, I have the RCA and just bought the Pentatone

    I believe the Bayreuth is first and the Vienna is 2nd

    Please let me know how you like the Vienna. The sound has gotten much criticism.
