"I just received this CD from Amazon and I am absolutely amazed that recordings made over 90 years ago sound so wonderful! If anyone ever doubted why John McCormack was lauded as the greatest tenor of the first half of the 20th Century, just listen to this CD. For clarity of tone, for phrasing, for vocal range, and for pure emotion, no one could possibly surpass him. It is a real joy to hear that incredible tenor voice all these many years later. Thank God he lived after audio recording was possible. This is a real collector's item."

"John McCormack was one of the most popular singers of his day. He was primarily known for his operatic tenor, but he also had great success with his recordings of popular songs. This disc collects a number of his more popular recordings. I would have preferred a larger sampling of his work from the 1910s, but it does have several classics, including "Somewhere a Voice Is Calling" (which NARAS has inducted into their Recording Hall of Fame) and "The Lost Chord" (one of the most popular songs of the turn of the twentieth century)."
