Rainer,

Thanks for your help; Ben Roth has sent me a full catalog of the original
LP edition so, for the moment, I have a lot of data to work with regarding
the label.

Not only has the whole series been reissued on CD, several items have been
pirated. In my project I am documenting the original label, both LPs and
CDs, partly
with the intention of identifying the boots. And I would tend to agree
that, under current circumstances, these could be 'done better,' though the
ones I've heard
weren't done badly, which makes them attractive to the privateers. The
practice of reissuing historical opera is itself now an evolutionary and
historic process,
and I view Club 99 as a significant part of that activity.

best,

David N. Lewis
