Famous conductor Arturo Toscanini made that statement. Arturo heard Caruso and all the rest of the best tenors and said Mario Lanza was the greatest of all. I know that comment will always be debateable. However, after listening to this whole box set I'm inclined to believe Lanza was the best. I think this guy came into life with such a huge heart and luckily the voice gorgeous enough to project it. Some of the songs on this extraordinary collection are so powerful it caused my arm hair to stand at attention. If you can listen to Mario sing The Lord's Prayer and not be moved, you may have one foot in the grave. This 100 hits item must be the best deal for anyone interested. I'm absolutely astonished at how good the sound is. Whoever did the remastering might have put extra effort into this release because it's so remarkably clear & natural. The only thing that might disqualify this box for some, is the fact that 2 CDs are entirely operatic which is to say non-English. With a voice this passionately beautiful it doesn't bother me in the least. I know however for others that's a real show-stopper. So be forewarned this isn't strictly English verbiage. If you're looking for a brilliant warm golden voice that could sing the phone book and make it mesmerizing, this could be your man! Mario Lanza's obvious female counterpart would likely be Rosa Ponselle. Both had the automatic undeniable gift. If I've tempted you, jump on this; it's too good to miss. Besides somebody might get dumb and withdraw this set & discontinue it. Happy listening........

How wonderful to hear all these different styles of music sung by Mario Lanza. Opera, Neapolitan songs, songs from his movies, and lots of so-called "popular songs". Wow, a great treat to hear these songs, and the quality of the recordings is excellent. Highly recommended to all those who love Mario Lanza's beautiful voice.

I remember Mario Lanza as if I just saw him yesterday. He had such a wonderful voice, with such a range. The LORD gives all of us such gifts. Mario Lanza had a gift that just couldn't be topped, in my opinion.

Three CD's of the best songs of that era and two CD's of some of the best tenor operatic arias of all time.
I alternate modern, operatic, modern, operatic & modern. Provides a wonderful afternoon of listening and
reading.

Format: Audio CD
These are real bargain prices (as I write this less than ten dollars from Amazon Resellers) for a 5 CD 100 track Mario Lanza collection.

Having read through the track list, and that took a while, I couldn't off the top of my head come up with any popular Lanza recording that isn't included in this collection. You get his top operatic recordings, traditional Italian favorites, the big hits from his movies, and his covers of other popular songs (such as You'll Never Walk Alone).

Some of my favorites are from the movie "The Student Prince", which ironically was the movie he was scheduled to appear in, but wasn't allowed to because his excesses just had him physically and mentally in such bad shape that the producers couldn't risk including him in the shooting schedule. But his performances of the music were dubbed in, and they were outstanding.

Every time we listen to Lanza I wonder why we don't do it more often, but that's what happens when there are hundreds or thousands of great performers out there. It's hard to get around to them all as often as we'd like to. But every time we listen to Lanza it feels like we've really treated ourselves.

I hold back a star because these tracks are not audiophile quality. The background music sometimes suffers from distortion of the type you may be used to from recordings from the 30s through the 50s. However, the same problem doesn't seem to apply to Lanza's voice, which seems to overcome that limitation. At first I thought that there might be some distortion when he "went really big" ... either in volume or a high note. However, that turned out to be the cheaper headset I happened to be using. When I turned down the volume I didn't get that distortion ... which means it was the headset speakers, not the source recording.

Despite that, for this price and collection I think this is a good buy.

This collection provides us with a vast sampling of some of the best of Mario Lanza's repertoire. If you like Lanza, you'll enjoy this album. Thank you for the fast shipment.
