CD Reviews

What a disappointment!
(1 out of 5 stars)

"I love these old Neopolitan songs. I love Ennio Morricone's music. I thought I would be getting some lovely orchestral settings by this great maestro of these old songs. BUT NO -- The main artist is a female vocalist! Come on, do you really want to hear a woman singing O Sole Mio? or Return to Sorrento?, or any of the others? These are guy songs and they sound terrible sung by a female. I'll probably throw it out next time I weed out my CD's."
Ignore the previous review. This is a GREAT recording!
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a famous recording in Italy, and deservedly so - Mirando Martino is simply superb - wonderfully committed, passionate and with a sultry, smokey voice that oozes sex appeal. She had a big career in Italy in the 50's and 60's, and deserves to be far better remembered. If you enjoy passionate, full blooded versions of the great Neapolitan classics, give this CD a try - you'll be blown away."
