"There must be dozens of CD's with Mahler's 'Das Lied von der Erde' and more than a few with performances by the great baritone, Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau, so you really don't need this one, which is a transfer from vinyl. I have the vinyl recording, and I wasn't thrilled with it, so I'm doubly unimpressed by this version. The problem is certainly not in Fischer-Dieskau's performance, or in the performance of any others. The problem is with the recording quality, which sounds muddy. The most one can say for this version is that it is inexpensive, but I suspect there are saveral other better recordings, even by Herr F-D which are much more rewarding to the ear."
