|Andante transferred from the original Selenophone film by Seth Winner.
Melodram I suspect did not mess too much with their source which are probably pretty close to the original laquer dubs. The Andante sound shows a surprising lack of coloration and a respectable high end. Not being familiar with other live opera recordings of this vintage I can only comment that this is a wonderful performance and that the Andante pressing is a big improvement over the Melodram but that still the sound quality keeps it in the category of being for those interested in historic performances.
