Interesting. I've heard 1960 and 1962, and this looks like something of a hodgepodge cast (multiple Wotans, multiple Brunnhildes) - other than Crespin and Milligan, and what will presumably be decent sound, what's the attraction?

BTW, speaking of Kempe, his Dresden Meistersinger is due for release shortly:

The attraction is this is only "official" Ring recording conducted by Kempe, remastered by master tapes. The Testament recording form ROCG was remastered from an off-air recording.

Anyone heard this yet?

The Testament recording form ROCG was remastered from an off-air recording.
But features Hotter in reasonably good voice, and a generally stronger cast than the 1961 Bayreuth.

BTW, this Testament set of the '57 ROH cycle is on sale at Berkshire.
