Nearly all of the D'Oyly Carte recordings are available on CD: the last =
set, done in stereo mostly in the 1960's, has been available for a while =
from Decca/London, and has recently been reissued in a deluxe set which =
reproduces the original album cover art. If you want the old monaural =
recordings with Martyn Green, Nimbus has reissued several of these, and =
I gather is planning on doing them all.
=20
As for Norma with Callas, she did two studio recordings of it and there =
are umpteen live recordings which used to circulate as bootlegs but are =
now considered public domain. Since EMI has issued nearly every sound =
that came from her mouth, you should be able to replace that too.
=20
I sympathize about the spoken word recordings - there were some real =
gems in the old Caedmon catalog which never even made it to cassette, =
let alone CD. We "lost" ours about five years ago.

Subject: [Videolib] the sad fate of old LPs

Someone a while back asked if there was a comparable listserv for sound =
materials, but I don't recall an answer to this question . . . if there =
is one, please let me know. I need to consult with others about the =
fate of our LP collection (about 800 albums). We have been told to =
collect in compact disc format only, and to discard our record =
collection. I have replaced many of our old titles on compact disc, but =
many of the ones that are left just aren't available in that format. =
Now I've been told I need to "discard" them, but it is killing me to do =
this. The titles include lots of poetry, often read by the poet; drama, =
lots of it pretty obscure, like Langston Hughes' Jericho-Jim Crow, =
directed by Ailey and Hairston . . . lots of opera, including old Doyly =
Carte productions and Norma sung by Callas.=20

Any ideas? I've thought about recording some from LP to compact disc, =
for titles that are truly impossible to replace. I have tried donating =
them to other schools, but most are in the same situation, not =
interested in taking on more LPs. Any suggestions would be welcome--I =
feel terrible, criminal even, just throwing them out!!!!!!
Thanks for any suggestions!
