    White paper cd sleeves, okay booklet with mainly the track listings for each cd. On the plus side the box is small and light for 66 cd's.

    This is what I feared, an insult to the legacy of this great artist, Decca should be embarressed for this shameful treatment

    La Regina deserves much better......




    Look at the "red carpet" treatment for new Decca Pavarotti boxset........

    I puzzle when I hear these charges that Tebaldi was 'uncommunicative' as a singer. To me she always acted more than adequately with her voice. And the beauty of it was astounding. What do you want, guys? Blood?

    My feelings chime with John Steane, who, by the way, finds a great deal to admire in Tebaldi's singing.

    And comparing her Gioconda with Callas', we find two extremely fine performances, only one of which stands out in bold relief, while the other settles pleasingly and undisturbingly down within its frame. One notes the reappearance after the scene with Laura in Act III as a good example of Tebaldi's generous tone and sympathetic expression ("I have saved her for him"), but Callas is thrilling: "salva per lui", she sings, with that sudden thrust of emotion and that feeling for an inspired moment.

    So, yes, I guess I do want blood!

    Regina? Divina?

    Non disputandum, certainly.

    To each their own.

    But for my time and emotional involvement, its the vivid expression and unrivaled psycho-drama of Callas any day.

    Cheers.
