    Confirmed - the original LPs are different recordings than the DVD, CD and cassette recordings of the entire opera.

      Can anyone confirm whether these are the same or different recordings than the three individual LPs (Private Parts, Perfect Lives, Music Word Fire)? If one (me, for instance) has the DVD or CD of the entire opera, do they also need to get the earlier albums?
