One of the Most Valuable and Successful Sections of the Living Era Catalogue is the Wonderful Songs of Series, Demonstrating the Achievements of the Great Songwriters of the First Half of the 20th Century. So Far There have Been an Extraordinary 23 Releases Covering Such Familiar Names as Gershwin, Berlin, Porter, Kern and Rodgers, as Well as Lesserknown Figures Like Ahlert, Schwartz, Rainger and Woods. Number 24 is Among the Best, Spotlighting the Immortal Songs of Hungarian-born American Composer Sigmund Romberg (1887-1951). He was the Last Giant of American Operetta, but to Whatever Style Or Mood He Turned, Romberg was Able to Bring a Charm Uniquely His. Deep in My Heart (Also the Title of Romberg?s 1954 Biopic) Presents Arguably his 25 Finest Songs. Romberg Created a Long String of Musicals, the Most Memorable Being his Operettas of the 20s, the Student Prince, the Desert Song and the New Moon.
Romberg The Magnificent

"If you don't appreciate Sigmund Romberg, you have no soul.
I wish the CD would have included his "Shadows on the Moon" (from "The Girl of the Golden West")sung by the devine, Perfect Ingenue, Jeanette Mac Donald. That musical oater was based on a Puccini Opera & play and included brilliant performances by Nelson Eddy who was trim and in excellent voice."
Just exactly what we were looking for

"We watch a lot of movies from the Classics, so when we watched one about Sigmund Romberg, we loved the music so much that I went right to Amazon.com and found the music plus the recording stars we like so well. I highly recommend this to anyone who has a romantic heart."
