HD-Vinyls 24/96 (RCA) Mario Lanza – His Greatest Hits From Operettas And Musicals

front-small-boxsetMany thanks to our friend Bob for these gems
One of the most beautiful voices ever, unfortunately gone too early at the age of 38. 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 among the best tenors of the 20th century. I think this guy came into life with such a huge heart and luckily the voice gorgeous enough to project it. 
Mario Lanza had a voice you only hear once in a lifetime. There really are no records which do him justice…they just couldn’t capture it with the equipment they had. This compilation is nice, though. A pleasant reminder of what he was.

Ripping Info


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.
My rips are almost rough rips.

  • Software: iZotope RX 4 Advanced, Adobe Audition CS 5.5, Twisted Wave 1.9
  • Super 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.

    • Hi Bob…I have to check it, but I think, these were the only. But I have other 5 LPs in my collection. I will rip them soon, but one, that I’m ripping just now 😀

  1. Ich muss gestehen, habe noch nie von Mario Lanza gehört. Habe gerade schonmal kurz reingehört, eine außergewöhnlich schöne Stimme! Vielen Dank dafür, lieber Alf 🙂

    • Translation of Gabi79

      I must confess, I’ve never heard of Mario Lanza. Just heard just once, an exceptionally beautiful voice! Thank you for that, dear ALF

  2. Rachmaninoff – thank you very much for reloading this Mario Lanza’s previously not-working piece to allow me to complete the downloading of his masterpiece!
    Your service to the Humanity by making so much of wonderful music available to the millions are appreciated and recognized! My token of appreciation will follow.
