Opera ItalianEnglish I have come upon the Mercury opera recordings fairly recently although I have been collecting other Mercury records and CDs off and on for 35 years or I have managed to get the records of all of the Mercury operas except Lucia Di Lammermoor and Rigoletto which for some reason don't seem to turn up nearly as often as the others and have very high prices well beyond my interest in payingThe sound of all of these late 1950s early 1960s opera recordings is classic Mercury Living Presence stereo sound and actually uite alive and wonderful On first listening to one I thought if only all operas were recorded so well These are records where you could enjoy listening to the sound of the opera performed in the theatre even if you didn't like the opera They really show off just how good Bob Fine and Wilma Cozart were as engineer and recording directorSince I was interested in listening to Lucia and had not been able to buy the Mercury recording on records I bought this Urania 2 CD set of the Mercury recording knowing very little about it other than it was the Mercury recording and it claims to be a Restored Edition This set comes without a libretto so I also picked up a cheap copy of Decca's second recording with Sutherland which does have a libretto just so I could get a libretto to follow alongAs noted I don't have the Mercury Records set of this opera to compare the CD to but I do have several other Mercury operas and I do have the single disc Mercury record of excerpts from the opera After having listened to the complete opera on this CD set I listened to the excerpts on the record The CD does sound a lot like the Mercury record except and there are some important exceptions Track 4 of CD 1 is very close to track 1 of the record but some of the other tracks obviously have the high freuencies removed Listening to the CD first it does sound pretty good and a lot like A Mercury record But comparing the same music seuentially the highs on the CD are often but not consistently missing The fundamentals are there but some of the overtones appear to have been filtered out perhaps to remove noise or distortion The CD doesn't have all the depth and detail of a Mercury record does any CD but the missing highs also mean important depth and detail cues are reduced or missing and add to the information loss It sure would be nice if Philips could get rights to this and properly remaster it for CD and SACD from the original 3 track stereo master tapes but that doesn't seem to be happening But if you really want to hear this recording of this opera this particular CD set gives you a pretty good idea of what the record is like but it does have its flawsIn fact I strongly suspect that what I was listening to in this CD reissue IS a CD of the record For the most part in isolation it sounds very good but there are if I remember correctly two places where you can hear a noise that sounds suspiciously like the bump of a bubble in the vinyl of a record with that defect and there are a couple places where a scratch comes through and there are a couple places where there is distortion on loud high notes that suggests a record not a master tape Overall the effect is uite like listening to a near mint record played on a system not uite as good as my own My suspicion is that a near mint record this is a 53 year old recording after all WAS played on a playback system better than mine and transferred to digital probably at better than red book CD resolution processed to remove mostly minor record noises and often some of the high freuencies and downrezed to red book CD And CD resolution and the removed high freuencies are why it doesn't sound as good as the record even though I am playing the CD on an Oppo BDP 105 through the dedicated stereo outputs In fact I have made CDs from fine old vinyl in my own collection that I have copied mostly so I could listen to them in the car and aside from the missing hig
