Re: [ARSCLIST] Offenbach's Grand Duchess

Thanks to all! My copy was minus a booklet, so I don't know if a date would have been shown in it.

As I recall, it was marketed later in true stereo. Was it untrue stereo and therefore 1950., or was it later and should have a later date?

OFFENBACH: LA GRANDE DUCHESSE DE GEROLSTEIN..SOLOISTS, PASDELOUP ORCH. COND. RENE LEIBOWITZ (URANIA UR 155-2) .. recorded in 1950, but I can't find it issued before the Urania, which was probably 1959. Not in WERM, not in Schwann. Anyone know of an earlier issue?

FWIW, here's Ommer's report on the Preiser CD release:
