Note: I am not aware of any recordings of the score with lyrics by Cochran and Krimsky. Recordings of Die Dreigroschenoper in the original German exist, as well as those using subsequent English translations, most notably by Marc Blitzstein for the 1954 off-Broadway revival, MGM E 3121 [reissued as CD/Decca Broadway 012 159 463-2], by Ralph Manheim and John Willett for the 1976 New York revival, Columbia PS 34326 [reissued as CD/Sony 51520], and by Jeremy Sams for the 1994 London revival, CD/JAY 1244.
