CRITIC REVIEW:

“Pearl has issued here all the available sides (some of which were never released in 78rpm form) of two performances at the Royal Opera House….To say Chaliapin is larger than life is an understatement: he is simply huge in personality and expressive power….Both [the above] series of extracts deserve a place in any collection of historic recordings, and Pearl have done a marvelous job in presenting and documenting them so well.”
