Chris, I had it on a 45 years ago, I think the flip was A Night To Remember, I never cared for the flip but Behold was great. I have the three CD collection, just thinking about And Here You Are, great recording.

'Never 'til Now' is a beautiful song, but without Mario Lanza's voice it is just pleasant background music...he lends emotion and nuance to the song which, in my opinion, is unmatched.
ps: Am looking for any information on V. DeCrescenzo, who wrote "Rondine al Nido"...can only find info in Italian which I do not speak..anyone?

"Love In A Home" was also on the flip side of "Seven Hills of Rome" soundtrack recording. "Love In A Home" is from the Broadway Musical "L'il Abner"(1956)starring Peter Palmer, Edie Adams, and Stubby Kaye(as Marryin' Sam), based on Al Capp's comic strip. For some reason, the song was deleted from the movie version. I did have the Broadway cast album, years ago, Peter Palmer and Edie Adams sang it as duet. Back in the 1980's, Peter Palmer was a guest host, with Tom Hatten, on KTLA T.V., Los Angeles, when they aired "Li'l Abner". Peter Palmer mentioned that Mario Lanza sang "Love In A Home". Peter only made that one movie. He was good looking and had a good singing voice. He mentioned that comedian Dick Shawn was considered for the part of "L'il Abner", until the Broadway Musical producers saw Peter Palmer,on "The Ed Sullivan Show". By the way, Valerie Harper(later, "Rhoda") was a chorus dancer in "Li'l Abner". Cable T.V. Systems have music channels which air all kinds of music, even oldies, Big Bands, as does Sirius Satellite Radio. Maybe people could request they air Mario Lanza songs. I notice that the soundtrack recording of "Seven Hills of Rome" had only one side of the movie's soundtrack songs, whereas, "For The First Time" had both sides of the soundtrack songs from that movie. NPR(National Public Radio)plays both classical music and jazz. Perhaps they would play Mario Lanza's songs.

Hi Derek,thanks for responding to my questions,however i could'nt access that info,so the BIG question to you is,are there anymore gems out there?That Lamento was scary in its power & intensity & the Boheme was shear perfection. Del Monaco & Corelli were great voices but not great singers from the heart.Good job Sinatra was'nt a tenor!

Ed,

Have heard Earthbound and Do You Wonder - I believe I have them on the red 45rpm records. Have to look through my old records.
  

Ed & Suzanne,

Have to go back on utube and listen again to "Never Til Now."
My daughter, who has a Masters in Psychology, thinks I have OCD (Obessive Compulsive Disorder) because of my focus on only Mario Lanza - I call it OMD - (Obsessive Mario Disorder) - ha bye for now friends.

The song "Lygia" , sung by Mario Lanza, was from "Quo Vadis". It wasn't sung in the movie. It would be played as background music, for scenes with Deborah Kerr playing Lygia . I think that also applies to "Mona Lisa'. It was background music for the movie " Captain Carey, U.S.A." starring Alan Ladd. Then lyrics were added and was a hit for Nat King Cole. Did Paul Francis Webster also write "April Love", sung by Pat Boone ?

Amazon (US) has one used copy of the very rare CD "The magic of Robert Earl" from a UK supplier at a low price:
http://www.amazon.com/Magic-Robert-Earl/dp...ef=ntt_mus_ep_dpi_1

The lyrics of "Never till now" "I'll walk with God" and "Love is a many splendored thing" were all written by Paul Francis Webster. But, I don't believe Never Till Now was sung in the movie Raintree County, nor was the song Love is a Many Splendored Thing sung in the movie by that name. The melodies of those 2 songs ran through those movies, but no lyrics. Anybody know why? Did Webster perhaps write the lyrics for both after those movies were made?

Audrey, just saw you've first heard Never Till Now, I can imagine what kind of effect it had on you. Like my buddy Chris it is one of my best. I first hard it on the the Seven Hills album, that along with Earthbound and Do You Wonder on that album have been on my best list since I was about 15. I recently started listening to tracks fro Vagabond King, one which stands out is called Nocturne, it blows me away each time I hear it. If you don't have it I can send you it. Enjoying Mario so much lately and so appreciative of his music. Doing a little better today, I stepped back some, Ed

Dan, thanks. Will do. Audrey, isn't "Never Til Now" one of the most divine things you've ever heard. Listened to it again on Youtube last eve with tears running down my face. Mario can really get to me. I've been able to download it on my Ipod.Thanks everyone.So glad to hear about Thelma, just thinking about her a couple of days ago, because she hadn't been heard from. Thanks Carolyn. Please wish her the best, looking forward to a post or two.For my British friends, sad to hear of the passing of my favorite author Ruth Rendell. Knew there hadn't been any new books for a while. Such a loss to the literary world.
