any thoughts on the various versions of The Merchant of Venice... Sir Vivian Dunn versus the Marco Polo version with Andrew Perry??    I've been having a difficult time locating the Dunn version..

Although the Penny recording is complete, I still prefer the Dunn in terms of performance and recording - the Marco Polo acoustic is simply too dry. The Dunn has been reissued several times on CD by EMI, initially as a filler to Malcolm Sargent's Ruddigore. See:
