Don't buy this for Lanza!

"Oh dear. Whoever compiled this collection was not paying much attention to the Mario Lanza selections! Several of them feature Lanza at his worst (Funiculi' Funicula', Santa Lucia Luntana, With A Song In My Heart), and Be My Love excepted, the tenor recorded superior versions of all of them on other occasions. Jan Peerce and Jussi Bjoerling fare much better, with both tenors sounding at the peak of their form. Ironically, several of their selections are more closely associated with Lanza (Vesti La Giubba, Granada and Che Gelida Manina), and one can only wonder at the reasoning behind these choices.Buy this if you're a fan of Peerce or Bjoerling; admirers of Lanza should look elsewhere for his best recordings."
A GREAT LISTEN!

"This CD is tremendous, giving us a true feeling of the "three" tenors, when there were a lot more than that! It is undeniable that Bjoerling stands out as the best, and will only make you want more.But the Lanza trademarks are here too."
