Mike Harkin asked:
Did you find 78's or an lp issue?? Marston has issued a 1908 Carmen with Emmi Destinn, in German, 56 sides.? An lp dubbing of this?

This Discophilia set dates from the mid-1970s.  They also produced an LP dub of the contemporaneous "Faust" with some of the same cast members (Karl Jorn, Emmy Destinn), along with single LPs devoted to various 78rpm-era German singers. I don't have the U.S. "High Fidelity" magazines from that period close by, but I remember first hearing about these sets from reviews in that mag.
