Oh, Joe, if only those stiff-necked critics of Lanza's had done what you just did! Mario Lanza was a force that they wanted to control, but no he sang the way he knew he was supposed to sing. We are better because of it!

Chris, I am so happy you have seen the light (maybe I should say heard the sound!). Your post was great so why not essentially say what you wrote as an endorsement for the CD on AMAZON. I think others may also be reluctant to purchase "Poetry and Passion" for the same reason (they already have much of the music) so your endorsement would be very revealing and helpful! I wouldn't change a single word

Hi everyone, I hope this posting finds you all well. This is my confession and apology to all my dear Lanza friends, ESPECIALLY Derek McGovern, Armando Cesari and Vincent Di Placido.
When Sepia began their association with Mario Lanza’s music, I thought it wonderful that a new avenue was opening up to introduce Mario to a new sector of people. Once I saw the cd’s I wasn’t moved to purchase them, since me, being a self proclaimed audiophile, snob and idiot, why would I buy music I already had. I would only purchase them if some or all tracks were taken from the original masters!
Last week was my birthday and being one more step closer to total senility and the fact that ‘Poetry and Passion was being released the next day, I purchased it. I only had a chance to listen to it last night, and that I did, over and over and over again. HOLY S- - T! WHAT A JERK I’VE BEEN!!!🤪😜 WHAT AN ACCOMPLISHMENT!!! The sound was wonderful! Mario’s voice was brilliant and so out in front.
Look, I can go on forever. Please know I am impressed and sorry for being such a jerk.
Vincent, I really think you should make a small documentary on your YouTube channel, about this entire process from beginning to end, ie how Derek gets everything on track with Sepia, how the songs are selected, how you go on you quest to find the albums and what happens when you turn everything over to Sepia.
WELL DONE GENTLEMEN!!! GREAT JOB!! I’m so sorry.

My new cd arrived today...quite surprised with some of the selections...all were unique in presentation and vocally awesome. I realize that Mario rarely sang the songs same way, so some tunes were ear-opening. Mike, I find myself closing my eyes during the songs that Purdom mimed .

Susan Hayward did her own singing when she portrayed Lillian Roth in "I'll Cry Tomorrow". I heard that Roth was disappointed she didn't have her voice used. Larry Parks did well lip syncing to Al Jolson's voice and Eleanor Parker was great, lip syncing Eileen Farrell's voice in the film biography of soprano , Marjorie Lawrence(who was stricken with polio, then, made a comeback) "Interrupted Melody". I read Marjorie Lawrence wished her voice had been used, but due to the effects of polio, her lung strength had been weakened. By the way, Kathryn Grayson wanted to play Marjorie Lawrence, but it was said, Lawrence thought Grayson was too pretty.

To Gail:
I was fine with Susan Hayward dubbing Jane Froman and Marni Nixon dubbing Deborah Kerr among others, but I find Edmund Purdom dubbing Mario a terrible distraction. Maybe because I am such a big Mario fan!

Still waiting on my cd! Did any of you notice Edmond Purdom in the 1953 version of Gigantic that was on TCM today?He was helping women into lifeboats.He did a good job in TSP miming Mario'wonderful singing.
