When I first purchased Callas opera highlights albums, usually with di Stefano, it was because of her.  After awhile I was buying them because of him because his voice and singing style was so beautiful, yet masculine.  What a tragedy that he tried to be Del Monaco rather than remain di Stefano.

Subject: [OPERA-L] Those Boheme highlights

Preiser No 93433 contains almost every selection from that Boheme
except the Albanese solos. The CD is dedicated to Di Stefano and it
is a glorious compilation, including the two early jaw dropping arias
from Mignon. BTW, while we're on the subject of diction, Giuseppe
Di Stefano's was just about perfect. My first encounter with him
was on the EMI Lucia with Callas, and his enunciation of text was an
immediate show stopper. He was, at his best, a superbly
musical vocalist.
