This very special record offers us the chance to sample the music of maestro Mantovani – the man who, let’s not forget, was selling records by the million long before the Beatles came on the scene. 1962’s “A Song for You” (English title of this album) is a somewhat unusual entry in Mantovani’s discography, being the only album he made that featured a vocalist throughout. The vocalist in this instance is someone very special, none other than legendary Italian operatic tenor Mario Del Monaco. The effect of Del Monaco’s voice set against Mantovani’s lush orchestral backgrounds is truly captivating, which produces exquisite versions of Love’s Last Word is Spoken (Parlami d’Amore Mariu), Be My Love, Ti Voglio Tanto Bene and Mantovani’s own Cara Mia, among others.
