The upcoming SONY box "Birgit Nilsson Edition - The Great Live Recordings" has this Tristan:

Wagner: Tristan und Isolde

Chor und Orchester der Wiener Staatsoper
Karl Böhm
Jess Thomas (Tristan),
Birgit Nilsson (Isolde),
Ruth Hesse (Brangäne),
Otto Wiener (Kurwenal),
Martti Talvela (König Marke),
Reid Bunger (Melot),
Peter Klein (Ein Hirt),
Harald Pröglhöf (Ein Steuermann),
Anton Dermota (Stimme des Seemanns),
Birgit Nilsson (soprano)
Wiener Staatsoper, 1967

I see it was available on at least one private label, that's all. Anyone knows anything about it?

Like is Jess Thomas singing Tristan or is he singing Isolde? Does the recording feature cows mooing like in so many other Tristan recordings from Vienna from 1967? Did the conductor suffer from loud flatulence during act III? You know, the usual.
