"Many of these recordings come from a very good time for recorded operetta: the late 1920's and early �30s, when the new electrical equipment clearly captured artists with stylistic roots extending back to the very period when many of these works were created�.The phrasing, the diction, the sensuousness and feeling of these 78s is something hard to recapture today. In the �20s and �30s, Paris had several theatres performing operettas, new and old, and the experience of the singers in all these productions is apparent."
