HD-Vinyl (Mono) 24/96 (Electrecord) Nicolae Herlea – Italian & Neapolitan Songs (Canzonette 1)

Many thanks to our friend ectudor for this beauty
You have very seldom the possibility to hear Italian and Neapolitan “canzoni” that are sung this good by a non Italian singer. Romanian super-baritone Nicolae Herlea has the voice and the maestry to do it in easy manner, not at least helped by the fact that the languages Romanian and Italian are a little related.

Sorry for the little distortions you may hear, here and there…this is due to the (probably) not too accurate mastering or pressing, because this vinyl is Mint, looks like never played.

Ripping Infos


If You hear some clicks and pops here and there, Who cares?
Id rather have a few light anomalies instead of destroying the music.
Enjoy the music, not the ticks & pops.
I tend more and more, in the last time, to de-click with an automatic setting between 0.7 and 1.2 so you can say, my rips are like half rough rips.

  • Software: iZotope RX 4 Advanced, Adobe Audition CS 5.5, Twisted Wave 1.9
  • Very light de-clicking with iZotope, significant clicks manually removing, no de-noising
  • DR-Analisys before converting to Flac
  • Converting Wave -> Flac: Twisted Wave 1.9
  • Artwork: Sony Alpha 350, Epson Perfection V750 Pro, Photoshop CS 5.5

If you like what i do, please consider that a little donation would be very appreciate.
I reinvest all donations in maintenance of my rig, for purchasing cleaning solutions and, most important of all, purchasing of new vinyls.

Click on the “Donate”-button. Thank you very much !

  1. One more Jewel in Herlea’s crown.
    Thanks to Ectudor for his generosity to all of us, and Alf’s technical ability to enhance it even more.


  2. If the back of the cover is correct, so the orchestra is Orchestra Simfonica a Radioteleviziunii and the director is not Popescu, but Iosif Conta.

    In any case, the album is excellent. Thank You once more.

    • Thank you – of coures, you’re right. I made this post on the basis of the other Herlea-Canzonette-post and forgot to correct the Orch. + Director
