Glad to know you have the Italian songs.

I found another sheet music which is music, no lyrics. Can you combine them?

Diane: I have that copy, but there is only the melody, no accompaniment for piano???, which I would need in performance...
EBay has several overpriced copies...and I think I have that same book of Italian songs purchased when I first started voice lessons???

I know of Dunbar Wright, I enjoy the Irish tenors of course. Do yourself a big favor and YouTube Anthony Kearns singing Bring Them Home. Anthony is the Honorary President of Lanza Legend and a huge Mario fan.

Kristine, the theme song to Bonanza was sung by Lorne Greene in the mid 60s, the flip side was a song called Ringo, it was half sung half spoken about a gunslinger and a sheriff who beat him to the draw. I liked Danke Shoen but can't stand Wayne Newton. Bobby Darin had more talent than Newton ever did and it was a song that had his style all over it, as for Here In My Heart I think Mario should have sung it.

One song that should never be sung is the theme song from "Bonanza". It should only be performed by many guitars ! On the first episode of "Bonanza"(1959), the cast sings the theme song, as they are riding off. Ugh ! It's terrible ! And Pernell Roberts had a very good singing voice ! I know "Do The Clam" was not a great song. Some thought Mario shouldn't have sung "Pineapple Pickers". Rosemary Clooney didn't want to sing "Come On A My House". She didn't like it.

I happen to like both versions of "Someday", sung by Mario Lanza and Judith Raskin and the one , Mario sang as a solo. Imagine if Mario Lanza had lived and sang "The Impossible Dream", "The Music Of The Night'(from "The Phantom Of The Opera), the theme from "Exodus"(lyrics written by Pat Boone, I think). He was first offered the song "Here In My Heart" , but passed on it and let Al Martino have the song. Bobby Darin was first offered "Danke Schoen", but passed it up, let Wayne Newton have it. Elvis Presley didn't like the song, "Lonely Blue Boy", so he turned it down. Conway Twitty sang it, instead.

I just heard a beautiful song "So Deep is The Night" based on a theme of Chopin, sung on youtube by Finbar Wright, one of the Three Irish Tenors at one time...I would have loved to hear Mario sing it, but I guess that never happened...am looking for the sheet music for it...?

"Love Songs And A Neapolitan Serenade" are all RCA studio recordings. The Coke version of "My Song, My Love" is on countless bootleg CDs but has never been officially released. Incredible as it may seem the Coke "Be My Love" has also never been offically released by RCA/BMG.

Many years back I purchased the LP Love Songs and a Neopolitan Serenade it was the first time I'd heard My Song, My Love and it fast became one of my favorites, it may have been the RCA recording I cannot recall, anyone here ?

I feel one other performance from Coke has to be Questa O Quella, I believe this was put on the LP His Favorite Arias.

The Coke "Someday" is on the 4 CD set Derek Mannering compiled for Reader's Digest in the UK. It is also on Jeff's "I'll See You In My Dreams" CD as well as the Camden "You Do Something To Me" CD.

To my knowledge "The Song Angels Sing" and "My Song My Love"; RCA studio recording, are only available on the "Mario Lanza Collection" 3 CD set. I would call them obscure and undeservedly so.

Hi David: I know of no one who would "throw their hands up in agony" at the thought of the Coke recordings you single out---"Some Day," "I'll Be Seeing You," and "Cielo e Mar"---being released. Ironically, however, BMG/Sony's (apparent) Lanza Compiler for Life has been singularly reluctant to include "Some Day" on *any* compilation, despite it being one of Mario's greatest recordings. I would love to see it more widely known (instead of vying for honours with the brilliant MGM "All the Things You Are" as Most Obscure Great Lanza Rendition). Ditto everything on the 'B' side of the MGM/RCA Student Prince, with the exception of "Yours Is My Heart Alone," which Mario spectacularly surpasses on his 1956 version.

The Coke recordings I *do* have a problem with are things like "Torna a Surriento" and "One Alone," both of which have been included twice on BMG CDs while far greater Coke material has been ignored.
