I'm sorry to hear that Kristine. Domingo has had enough problems already without this. However, unlike many people, there is no doubt he will have everything he needs when he needs it. I wish him a speedy recovery.

I CAME ACROSS A TON OF PROGRAM BOOKLETS OR LINER NOTES FOR THE THREE CDS. THEY ARE EXCELLENT WITH RARE PHOTOS OF MARIO AND IN DEPTH DESCRIPTIONS OF THE SONGS HE SANG. THEY ARE YOURS, JUST SEND SHIPPING COSTS. TO MAKE IT EASY I AM GOING TO ADD THE URL WHERE ALL INFO CAN BE SEEN REGARDING THE THREE CDS:

Derek McGovern could answer that Kris. There would be no copyright infringement. A few of the songs have been on some of the CDs already (and sounding much better than the old LP, reel to reel, or CDs extant. Amazon has a CD of it right now, but it is expensive (from 38 to 45 dollars) and has 72 tracks that include Vagabond King and MANY other Lanza songs.

FORGOT TO MENTION THAT IF YOU ARE ON THE MAIN PAGE BEFORE THE FORUM YOU CAN SEE THE SONG TITLES OF EACH DISC. MOST ARE ABOUT TWENTY TRACKS EACH. CLARITY IS SUPERIOR LIKE THE SEPIA DISCS.
AND IF ANYONE NEEDS EXTRA LINER NOTES I CAN SUPPY THEM.

Remember on the original LP of the Albert Hall concert, in The House on the Top of a Hill, at the ending, the note on the word Top, was off pitch by Lanza. He went a half tone sharp. On the CD Live from London, that flaw has been corrected. Today's technology can correct such things. That technology did not exist back in the 1960's. Ciao.

Welcome back, Sam, good to see you posting here again.

I'd love to see a new Lanza compilation from Sony for the 2021 centenary but as far as I know there's nothing being planned at the moment. The 2-CD BEST OF EVERYTHING has sold well for them and I would not expect the company to start working on another collection right now.

As for the Sepia CDs, they are lovingly compiled by Derek McGovern and full credit to him for his commitment there. When it comes to listening to Lanza recordings remastered directly from the original tapes (Sony) versus public domain material formatted for CD from multiple sources (Sepia), that's a matter of personal preference and I have no intention of entering into that debate here. Bottom line, enjoy whichever source pleases you best.

Tenor Placido Domingo has announced he has corona virus. Get well wishes. Everybody stay safe and well. I hope, Jose' Carreras doesn't get it. Years ago, he had battled leukemia. Did he have a bone marrow transplant ?
