"The assets of this recording are the young Renata Scotto who sings without her later stridency and Tito Gobbi in the role of Marcello. What sinks this recording for me is the effortful, whining Rodolfo of Poggi. He's heard to better effect in some other recordings but was a singer probably heard to better effect on stage rather than in recordings where vocal problems are magnified. Unless you're a die-hard Scotto or Gobbi fan who must have every recording, give this a pass."
