    Yeah, it sucks. It’s the bottoms that always have the biggest cocks. What a waste.

  • Baritenor says:

    Get This: Joan and Placido’s Hoffmann was the first Opera cd I ever bought. Even after all these years, it’s still one of my favorites. especially because of Gabriel Bacquier.

    What a way to start!

  • paddypig says:

    My first opera LP was LA TRAVIATA with Moffo, Tucker and Merrill.

  • CALLASORPHAN says:

    My intorduction to opera and Maria was her recording with Gobbi of Rigoletto--it changed my life!!

  • Daniel says:

    Not surprised callasorphan -- wonderful stuff! Gobbi was a great artist and a wonderfully warm human being apparently -- in real life the nice guy but onstage no one played bad guys better.
