I too am glad that one more CD has been added for all Lanza fans to enjoy. While I agree that a CD of this kind was needed I would rather make a CD with my choices selecting what I feel are his best operatic recordings that make me feel good and not have those choices made for me.

I've been dying for Dr. D to announce the new CD, especially through the recent discussion. :-) Now *that's* a compilation worthy of The Great Mario! May there be many more!

As I was checking out, at the Supermarket, today, I noticed two magazine books:W Newsweek published an Elvis Presley Magazine/Book, in conjunction with would have been his 80th Birthday on January 8, 2015. Also, Life Magazine has a magazine -book about Tony Bennett, out. It would be great to have a Mario Lanza Magazine out. The Library of Congress announced another group of films added to their Registry: "Rosemary's Baby"(1968) Mia Farrow. I am happy that "Down Argentine Way"(1940's) Betty Grable and Don Ameche, and "The Gang's All Here"(1945)Alice Faye, James Ellison, Carmen Miranda, made the list. "The Great Caruso" deserves to be on that list !

I would venture to say that before the night is over, Bill Ronayne will post to you right here. If not, write him at MLS of New York, 3315 Avenue J, Brooklyn, NY 11210-4117 or email Bill at wjronayne@optonline.net. I'm sure he won't mind my using the email because it is published in every issue. Bill does more for the legacy of Mario Lanza than almost any human being alive. Subscribing to his newsletter is the least we fans can do to help him in this most worthy of causes.

Just a quick post to say how delighted I am about the announcement of the Sepia cd "Mario Lanza Greatest Operatic Recordings". Derek, you are to be congratulated on making this happen, great work! & your timing is incredible :-)
The track listing is fantastic, "All killer no filler!"
Have a great Christmas everybody!
"Buon Natale!"
& Here is Mario in festive mood...

I enjoyed reading the latest issue of your newsletter, "The Legacy of Mario Lanza" (15th Anniversary Issue). Three of the world's foremost Lanza experts, Armando Cesari, Lindsay Perigo and Derek Mannering, all had articles that were informative and interesting. Cesari gave a complete overview of Lanza's incredible talent and versatility with many excellent examples (alhthough he still does not, and probably never will, understand the meaning of "opera singer"; Perigo highlighted and further explained Lanza's way with vowels that he and Jeff Rense discussed recently (which can be heard on our home page); Mannering's very informative article on how Lanza's CDs come to be and the process involved in determining the selections of music they contain.

I do not agree with any of these men 100% of the time (I don't agree with anyone 100% of the time - not my Priest, not my President, not even my own Judi, perhaps least of all her!). Nonetheless, I must say Bravo! Excellent articles by all three and a must read for any fan of Mario Lanza.

Derek,

Thrilled to hear about the new Mario Lanza CD, "Greatest Operatic Recordings" - I guess Christmas will be arriving for me in February. Will be checking Amazon.com to see when it will be available. Thank you and God bless you.

Will be waiting for the new CD. The two days of posting sort of led up to this announcement.

Remember well the first time I saw the Liberace show - we watched it every week on Sun night.

David,

Really enjoyed your post comparing the careers of Lanza & Liberace. My older sister is a lifetime fan of Liberace and I had to watch his TV show every week with her. In turn, she took me to see all of Mario Lanza's pictures. Our older brother took her to see a Liberace live concert in Carnege Hall. I agree that no one could top either in their field.

Yes, I mentioned Tibbett when we went through this before because, as you said, I was thinking only of singers. You certainly make a case with Liberace. I never knew some of the things you mentioned as to his life and career. Maybe others well chime in with their selections.
