In October TowerRecords is going to release a SACD version (newly remastered by UK ClassicSound) of this 1972 recording. - The BluRay seems to be out of print, so the upcoming release may be more than welcome!

Paul, as with most Tower Record releases, they aren't available on amazon or presto. Instead, have a look at cdjapan. There are many of the Tower Records items available (through their 'Proxyshopping'). The Mehta Turandot is already listed there:


1xBD + 2xCD
