While I remember seeing the LP, this is recording that I never had the
opportunity to hear..until now.  I remember reading an interview with Moffo
in the late 80s where she talked about this recording.  She said was ill and
in pain during the sessions with what was diagnosed as an ovarian cyst. 

Here is the cover of the CD release.

"The Moffo Thais is being realeased [sic] on CD. It is already available on
Amazon Music."

I'm not sure if the correct reaction to this CD release is "Finally," or
"Good Lord, Why?"  
Perhaps so a new generation can hear if her singing is really as bad as
legend has it.  (Short
answer: Yes, it is.  Although as someone else observed, hearing the young
Carreras is a real treat, and Bacquier and Diaz are fine.)

In any case, what I want to know is, will the CD version include that
ghastly Playboy centerfold-style picture of Moffo as Thais that was included
in the original LP album?  Whose 
idea was that, anyway?  David Sarnoff's?
