Yeh, I've got a few early '60s Wagner sets like that, mainly Decca/RCA... don't think EMI, DG or Phillips ever bothered with the idea, though I'm willing to be corrected. A full "Parsifal" is 10 sides, though - 5 LPs. When CDs came in I was finding myself about to automatically rise from my seat anyway where the old LP side changes used to be!
These days I'm back to preferring vinyl, even for Wagner, and getting up every 20 - 25 minutes doesn't bother me. Much preferable to trying to listen to Act 1 of "Die Walkure" at the Proms last week while the young lady next to me checked her mobile phone every 5 minutes!
