ONLY TWO DAYS LEFT BEFORE AMAZON SHIPS THE GREAT CARUSO. ESTIMATING SHIPPING TIME, IT COULD BE IN BY SATURDAY OF THIS WEEK OR FIRST THING NEXT WEEK. HURRAH!

I FIND THE COVER OF THE NEW BLU RAY TO BE REDUNDANT. IT IS THE SAME COVER USED FOR THE STANDARD DISC. IMAGINE A BUYER SEEING THIS AND NOT READING THE FINE PRINT ASSUMING IT IS THE SAME STANDARD DVD.

WELL, I DECIDED TO TAKE A GREAT PHOTO FROM ONE OF THE LANZA CDS AND HAVE IT BLOWN UP A BIT IN COLOR AND PASTE IT ON WITH LOVING CARE.....

I watched the video of Musical Comedy 1979 with Sylvia Fine Kaye. When did she mention Mario ? I didn't hear it.

HI MARTINO AND THANKS FOR THE GOOD WISHES. DOWN THE FORUM LIST SOME PAGES AGO DEKEK MANNERING GAVE HIS REVIEW OF THE BLU RAY GREAT CARUSO SINCE HE GOT AN ADVANCE COPY. HE SAID IT WAS LIKE SEEING A NEW MOVIE WITH INCREDIBLY RICH COLORS. I ASKED ABOUT THE SOUND AND HE SAID HE'D LEAVE THAT TO MY JUDGEMENT. I CAN WRITE A MORE SPECIFIC REVIEW AROUND MARCH 15, WHEN I EXPECT IT IN FROM AMAZON. DEREK MCGOVERN SAID I WILL GET IT BEFORE HIM.

I DID A MARIO LANZA SCENE TONIGHT. ANNA MADE ME HER SPECIAL SPAGHETTI WITH CLAM SAUCE BASED ON LOUIS PRIMA'S RECIPE. I TOLD HER I LOVE THE SCENE IN FOR THE FIRST TIME WHERE MARIO AND CHRISTA ARE EATING SPAGHETTI AND A WAITER COMES OVER TO GIVE THEM GRATED CHEESE. WHEN THE WAITER WALKS AWAY MARIO POURS THE ENTIRE BOWL OF CHEESE ON HIS PASTA. SO TONIGHT I DID THE SAME THING AS I LOVE LOTS OF CHEESE WITH MY CLAM SAUCE.

I THINK I WILL FIND THAT SCENE AND SHOW IT IN OUR THEATER TONIGHT ALONG WITH QUITE A FEW HOME VIDEOS I PUT ON DVD, WHICH LOOK AND SOUND GREAT IN 8 BY 14 SIZE.

Sam,
It's great news you feel better ! Thank you for kind words and you are welcome. I just finished reading a book about Elvis called Elvis Presley:American Idol by Susan Doll. In the book , it's written that Elvis liked Dean Martin and Mario Lanza, along with gospel music, rhythm and blues.

Sam, I am glad to hear things are looking on the bright side for you. Keep it up! You will probably be one of the first of us (besides Derek) to get the new TGC dvd. Please give your usual, thorough review when received. I will be looking forward to hearing your thoughts.

FYI:

 The Metropolitan Opera
ARIA CODE
Aria Code Returns March 10

The Met’s acclaimed podcast collaboration with WQXR is back for Season Three, once again hosted by Grammy Award–winning musician Rhiannon Giddens. The new Aria Code season will feature 18 episodes, starting on Wednesday, March 10, with Met Music Director Yannick Nézet-Séguin discussing “Nessun dorma” from Puccini’s Turandot, featuring a classic performance of the aria by legendary tenor Franco Corelli.

The podcast, which The New Yorker hails as “elegantly constructed and effortlessly listenable,” explores the human experience at the heart of opera’s greatest arias and their powerful relevance to contemporary issues. The extraordinary lineup of artists for Season Three includes Renée Fleming, Joyce DiDonato, Deborah Voigt, Gerald Finley, Nina Stemme, Pretty Yende, René Pape, and other remarkable artists.

MIKE: YOU MIGHT BENEFIT FROM BUYING ONE OF THREE CARUSO CDS THAT HAVE MODERN ORCHESTRAS WHICH PLAY WITH ENHANCED CARUSO SINGING. I HAVE ALL THREE AND THE EXPERIENCE IS THE BEST YOU CAN HEAR CONSIDERING THE RATHER CRUDE QUALITY OF ORIGINAL CARUSO 78S.

I STILL ENJOY PLAYING CARUSO 78S ON MY HORN VICTOR PLAYER. THE SOUND EMANATING FROM A GOOD SIZED HORN IS RATHER EXCITING AND "RINGING"

SIMPLY LOOK UP "CARUSO 2000" AND YOU CAN BY ONE ON AMAZON FOR AS LITTLE AS 2.58 (USED, EXC.)

Due to poor recording capabilities, I have never appreciated Caruso's greatness, and believe me, I have tried. I wonder if others can hear what I don't or are they just taking other peoples word for it. Care to comment?

THANKS KRISTINE FOR THE GOOD WISHES.

 THERE IS ALREADY A BLU RAY OF FOR THE FIRST TIME BUT IT IS VERY HARSH LOOKING. AND YOU NEED AN ALL ZONE PLAYER FOR IT (WHICH I SPENT THE MONEY FORJUST TO SEE IT. YES, I AM A CRAZY FAN. AS TO THE REST OF MARIO'S MOVIES COMING OUT ON BLU RAY, KEEP WISHING FOR IT. BUT BASED ON THE PAST, WE PROBABLY WON'T SEE ANY.


BY THE WAY I KEEP READING BIOGRAPHIES WITH PEOPLE THAT IN SOME WAY TOUCHED MARIO'S LIFE. SO FAR THE MOST WAS WRITTEN BY HOWARD KEEL. MARIO HAD A GREAT TALENT FOR IMITATING VOICES AND ONCE EZIO PINZA HEARD HIMSELF BEING IMITATED HE YELLED "LANZA YOU SON OF A BITCH, WHERE ARE YOU"!!
