I have several Caruso thick records, recorded only on one side. And Many Lanza LPs, boxed sets, and even 45s. Never play any of them anymore - don't know what to do with them.

I must be in the minority. I 've kept and will keep all my LPs. The text and photographs are worth it. Sure they take up a lot of room, but what better could I use it for? Saw an Elton John album at a Maxfield Parrish exhibit. A work of art and probably worth quite a bit now. They can't be replaced.

Many years ago I searched for Caruso 78s at the SA,oddly as rare as I thought they were I bought several for ten cents each and a quarter and on occasion their deliveries weekly always had a few, this was about 1963/64. I am holding on to original Sun Record Presley records that will surely pay off later and not for a dime or quarter. I never play my Lanza LP s they are put away and have been replaced by CDs,records take up too much room.

Hello Diane and Dan, thanks for the info about charities using eBay for selected items. The more they can sell a donation for, the more it benefits the charity. Glad to hear they are going beyond thrift shops. And Dan, I'm with you on excessive salaries for CEOs of charities. Such a shame. Looked up the Salvation Army and they have joint CEOs and they make $32,000 each, plus their joint housing allowance. Commendably modest!

Dennis...sorry, I guess I was reminiscing about the times when I could fill my library with inexpensive novels...and LP's..oh well
there are still sources for me in Florida...Faith Farms in particular, where I have gotten real deals on books, LP's, CD's and VCH tapes...they do a fine charitable job also and their CEO's don't make triple digit incomes either...

Dennis, both Goodwill in certain areas, and Salvation Army sell on ebay. I just bought an Insp. Morse DVD from a Goodwill store, and last week something I bought came from SA. Their thrift stores never have the best stuff anymore.

Just searched on ebay for Goodwill Auctions and found 450 items, including a US flag for $24.

Hello Dan, I'm puzzled by your thoughts on a charity reselling a donated product. Of course a charity receives them for free instead of purchasing them—it's a charity. And what would be a "non-elevated" price? If I could buy any of my used LPs for 10% of the purchase price, I would pay between 20¢ and 69¢. Seems like that would be a bargain over your experience of $1.00. And the more you spend by purchasing from a charity, the more money you make available for the charity. That's how they raise money on donated goods to benefit the people they help. When I donate my paperbacks, which I bought for an average price of $5.00, I would be thrilled if I thought they were going for $1.00…or even more, because so much more good could be done with my no longer wanted donations. And at the same time, the purchaser would receive the same pleasure from enjoying what I once enjoyed.

Matt: Call Jeanette at the Lanza Museum at 215-238-9691 to confirm your visit. She can tell you a good place for lunch. Not every restaurant near the museum is open in the afternoon. You might need to go near Broad St. Other things near the museum are the Lanza birthplace just aropund the corner 636 Christian St but you can't go inside as it's a private residence. There's the Mario Lanza Park on Queen St between 2nd and 3rd Streets and the mural on the corner of Broad and Reed Streets. Plus the Philly sites like the 9th Street Italian Market and various hisotical points of interest.

I'm holding a copy of the Mario Lanza Show Anthology for you. Let me know if you will still purchase it from me or if you're going to pick up a copy at the Lanza Museum. The price is the same either way.

Best, Bill

Jim...of course the Salvation Army or Good Will will always take them and give you nothing for them and then resell them at elevated prices to the unsuspecting public...why do they insist on reselling donated goods at elevated prices??? Years ago you could pick up used books and lp's for $1 a piece...now they charge 10 percent of the original cost of books and I don't know what they want for LP's???? Libraries are your best bet...they will probably resell them at reduced cost so others might enjoy them...good luck

Thanks for the post, Dan. Yeah, alot of family has picked this or that LP but as there are so many I thought I'd try another venue. And there is one more to try also...seeing if any libraries would want them. All the best to you and we gotta keep in mind that age is truly just a number!!!

Jeff, Steff, Diane, Thelma, Suzanne, Bill, Derek Mannering, Martino, Gary, Carusiello,Everybody on Jeff Rense-Mario Lanza Forum : I am sorry to hear and read that James Garner passed away at 86. He was handsome, a good actor, served in The Merchant Marines, The National Guard, U.S. Army, and received medals for his service during The Korean War. He was a political activist, too. I didn't read his autobiography. As for what he thought of Mario Lanza's voice, it depends if he liked opera, though Mario sang operetta, Broadway show tunes, pop music, too. I know that Tony Randall, Burt Lancaster, Charles Nelson Reilly were opera fans. In Part II of interview with Mother Dolores Hart on EWTN Cable Channel, she said, when she was a child , she would try to imitate her uncle Mario's singing and her mother and Aunt Betty would laugh. The nuns told her that she has a good voice for Gregorian Chants. By the way, Part III, conclusion of the interview will be on Saturday night, July 26th, at9:30 P.M.(Eastern Time Zone)on EWTN. She did mention her uncle Mario Lanza in Part I. She said that she and her mother were invited to the premiere of "The Great Caruso".

Jim: I have a cellar full of lp's...mostly opera and classical...most only played once, still in pristine shape...of course at 79 yrs of age, I can't take them with me, so my heirs will inherit them, and hopefully they will dispose of/ or enjoy them themselves...of course I couldn't get what they cost me in trying to sell them, but they are worth more than gold for the memories...keep your lp's and leave them to friends who may enjoy them...all my best...

I had written some more on the cost and mailing possibilities but it did not go through. Going around to book and record sales here in Connecticut, the usual price for LP's is $1.00. I could package the records and the individuals and I could figure out possibly sharing the postal costs. Again, please, any suggestions from anyone would be most welcomed. Contact me right here or at this email only about the recordings. Here it is: tichathompson@sbcglobal.net
