    Unfortunately that's six recordings...

    I think the Barenboim is 1991.

    Not sure, there is no mention at all in booklet or on box about any remaster, but everyone who just bought it is very impressed with how good it sounds for 1953, no one has compared it to older Andromeda release.......

    I think I read that Pan Classics is licensing the remaster from Andromeda. Don't recall where I read that though...

    The older 53 Andromeda Boxset clearly states it was remastered, also there was a 53 Golden Melodram boxset........

    I suspect newest Pan Classics boxset is just a repackage of older Andromeda remaster like HFTods said, whatever the case it sounds great and is really cheap, win win for us!

    Goodall is a must-have for any English speaker who doesn't know German. It is hearing the Ring in an entirely new light. I find the tempo too slow to be all that compelling dramatically, but it is a gift to true Wagner-lovers who wish to leisurely bask in the music for a few extra hours.
    Read this article:

    Goodall Ring Cycle In English & Why Wagner Wanted It That Way

    Slow tempo must be the reason it spans 16 disks instead of the normal 14.

    Beautifully packaged set too (image link).

    I'm sure they've been mentioned already, but for sound, singing and conducting, the choices for me are Solti and Karajan.

    You seem a tad disappointed. Want to sell it? Maybe we can work out a deal.

    Yeah, slow is not my favorite, but may be useful in understanding the English.

    What do you think of Sawallisch?

    It still looks like mine, only mine is with dust on it.

    I need to play it again to see if I really want to let it go.

    Fair enough. Or maybe Pugg wants to sell that dusty copy. No matter, no rush. I have 14 hours of it on CD in German and just nailed a deal on the Levine 7-DVD set for $34 shipped in very good condition to be delivered Dec 28 so I can RING in the new year!

    On advice of hpowders I am scoping out the Solti set. I have it ordered from a neighboring city's library to be picked up at my local library. If I really like it over and above my Neuhold set, then I will seek out a used set online.
