" I can get the name of Callas and De Los Angeles  in middle or late 
sixties, that there is no document of good singing of them in those years 
(though Callas had stopped her career much earlier, in the middle sixties 
she sang a bit  and the recorded documents are very sad , and De Los Angeles 
not as sad  but in much worse shape  than Tebaldi from the same years)"

Utter nonsen. VDLA recorded a wonderful version of Canteloube's chants 
d'Auvergne as 'late' as 1969  moreover her 1967 Zarzuela record is a 
treasure and even more impressive.  From the gorgeous Zapateado from La 
Tempranica to the 'Babylonian' couplets from la corte del Faraon...great 
singing and a desert island disc.

As for Callas : her 1969 recording of "Arrigo! ah parla a un cor" is another 
example of great singing.
