The reason that I'm issuing this version is that I discovered there were left/right differences when I transferred the LPs to PC. It turned out with further inspection to be narrow stereo beneath the noise! This remastering is the first time this performance will be issued in remastered stereo.

Thankfully modern software help begin to address the mechanical issues - clicks, pops, hiss, EQ and pitch - so that you can now hear the singers move around on the stage and, as an example, you can better hear details like Alfredo's offstage serenade and Violetta's sad attempts to move around despite her illness.
