Notes & Reviews:

Maria Callas's complete discography (for the first time joining her EMI Classics and Warner Classics recordings) has been remastered and re-released across a broad product suite, including a deluxe complete box set, individual recordings, a compilation, two vinyl releases and a digital product suite. "Pure" is a glittering selection of opera favorites that showcases Maria Callas's unique voice and her heart-breaking portrayal of tragic heroines.

American Record Guide, March/April 2015
I have to admit that in anything they both sang I prefer Tebaldi. I guess I prefer sheer beauty of voice to dramatic flair.
