Lebendige Vergangenheit: James Melton
A couple of years ago an Austrian recording company came out with a wonderful CD. It's all opera and classical, with such arias as Oh Image Angel-Like and Fair (from "The Magic Flute," in which my father made his 1942 Metropolitan Opera debut) and the Adio from "Madama Butterfly" (my personal favorite).
You can buy the CD on e-bay or Amazon, but the best deal is $5.99 through Berkshire Record Outlet (Berkshirerecordoutlet.com; BRO code # 139012 for this CD).
I hasten to add that I had nothing to do with producing this CD, nor do I gain anything from it financially. But I enjoyed it and thought you would too.
