"Yes, I know Brook from the movies. Btw, te Mexican cast recording of La Mancha with him and the pretty amazing female baritone Nati Mistral as Aldonza is quite terrific."
I definitely agree with you about that recording. I owned it years ago as an LP, then years later I was surprised to come across a CD issue of it somewhere, and I snapped it up. Now it seems to be long out of print.
