A Cheap Ring Recording

Looking for an excellent but inexpensive Ring recording?

Amazon has the Janowski for around $30. The set has one serious problem, Theo Adam's Wotan, and, yeah, that's a problem. But it's got some great singing as well: Jessye Norman's Sieglinde, Kurt Moll's Hunding, Siegfried Jerusalem's Siegmund, Jeannine Altmeyer's Brunnhilde, Yvonne Minton's Fricka. Rene Kollo is a good Siegfried. The conducting is excellent, the sound gorgeous.

It's a great bargain, whether it's your first or tenth Ring.
