LPs are not banded: each record side is presented as a continuous performance (ie. a suite or medley).

The World's Greatest Operettas, recorded and manufactured for Reader's Digest in Cyclophonic® Miracle Sound, by The Radio Corporation Of America.

Recorded simultaneously on monophonic and stereophonic tape on three separate machines through 20 channels. Every record produced is cut from an original tape. No monitoring, copying or equalizing has taken place, in order to insure you the benefit of the beautiful, natural sound of the original performances.

*Nine of these eighteen operettas, which feature Anna Moffo, have been reissued on compact disc (Reader's Digest Music 129C).
