I am hoping to persuade our village choir to add Cesar Frank's Panis Angelicus to our repertoire. I am surprised that I have never encountered a recording of Lanza singing this work. So many fine singers have recorded it going back decades.

(Diane Cox) Dennis, I was inadvertently blocked during the troll attacks, and although the moderator tried I was never reinstated. So finally figured out I have a second email addy,and using my first name and my maiden name, was able to log on.

To Jim Check amazon under Seipi and London. You can get B'way CD separately or in combo with Cesare Siepi (SP.) a better deal

Happy St. Patrick's Day ! On magazine stands, I have been seeing magazines about the lives of Elizabeth Taylor, Lucille Ball, The Rat Pack, Elvis, JFK, Marilyn Monroe, The Beatles. I am wondering if there will ever be a magazine about Mario Lanza ? Also, Packard Theater, at The Library of Congress, has been showing "It's Always Fair Weather" with Gene Kelly. I wonder if they will ever show a Mario Lanza movie, also, LACMA(Los Angeles County Museum of Art)shows vintage movies and wonder if they will ever show a Lanza movie, as does The Aero Movie Theater, Santa Monica, Calif. Movie-t.v. actor, Richard Erdman passed away. He was in the movie "The Men"(1950)starring Marlon Brando and Jack Webb, about paralyzed veterans. RIP. Also, guitarist, Dick Dale-"King of The Surf Guitars', passed away. He was in the "Beach Party" movies. TCM will have a salute to Stanley Donen, Monday, March 18th. He passed away, about the same time as Andre Previn's passing. RIP.

Hello Al Canez (wink, wink). I have not had a single email from a Russian lady. Perhaps she has a personal interest in you? I am a bit puzzled by all the name changes. When I updated my address, I merely added a 1 to my true name and it went perfectly. As a Californian, I am intrigued by the mysterious Al Catraz.

Good evening...thanks Mike for getting in touch. (Jim T. Here) I guess by mistake when I requested to stop getting emails they fook me off this site completely but I was able to get back on right away with the "new" name. Whew, the Russian lady does get stuff out. I have a couple hundred LP's in super condition and that includes all Mario's American RCA versions. Nice to play them now and then. A shame George London's Broadway LP was never put on CD. Superb and emotinal singing! Have a pleasant evening folks.

(Diane Cox) Chris - that's just right. Witness protection. I sent Ed a vinyl copy of Magi Mario along with several others that I had duplicates of. Still have some vinyl, keep intending to move it on. There is a used record shop not too far from my home - it's only open sporadically though.
This is indeed my birthday month, and I'm surely getting older.

Hi Jim: remember Bonnie and me.We spoke on the phone quite some time ago.I wanted to sign up for your newsletter but you wouldn't take any money. Anyway, be thankful it is only e-mail. The robo calls on the phone are ten times worse. You can't tell me the phone company or congress can't put a stop to it. Someone has to be making a lot of money on it.

Good morning all. Is anyone being inundated with emails as I am from the Russian lady and others? I have requested no emails to be sent permanently but they are still coming. Appreciate any thoughts. By the way, I'm Jim Thompson!

I agree - Ed McManus was a wonderful and generous man, and a true Lanza enthusiast. He was also an avid fan of Sergio Franchi. He is still very much missed. Ciao.

artie, a lot of us on this forum miss Ed McManus. He could get a bit touchy and have his feelings hurt at times, but he had a good heart and surely was a dedicated fan of Mario. I think of him often and his enthusiastic ways of introducing Mario to others (as you plan to do).

It's been a long time since I've posted here. I have been lurking, and I'm glad to see the spammers gone.
I'd like to remember Ed McManus, a good friend to many of us here. Ed and I spoke often, comparing notes on many of the Lanza albums we enjoyed. Magic Mario was a particular favorite of Ed's, and he asked me if I could make hime a copy on CD. Unfortunately, his favorite track from the album seemed to be the previous owner's favorite also, and it was impossible to copy from the LP. Fortunately, I had enough duplicate copies of that cut, that I could find the same version and add it to the Cd. Ed was a good man, and a great fan of Mario Lanza. I bring this up, because many of us are getting alder and "shedding this mortal coil." While I am still here, I plan to do everything I can to increase the awareness of Mario Lanza and "sell" him to a new generation.

WOW! all these new names we have to get use to. It’s like we all went in to the witness protection program and found our way back to Mario.
Be well, all.

(diane cox) I checked out at least one more Lanza FB site while I was blocked. They have good photos, some I never saw before, but no info like we have here, not much discussion. My life has gone on as before - no major change of any kind.
