HD-Vinyls 24/96 (RCA) Mario Lanza Sings Caruso Favorites

front-small-boxsetFor Bob
By 1958 Lanza’s lirico spinto tenor had darkened significantly, acquiring a baritonal richness in its middle and lower registers, while still retaining the celebrated top notes for which he was justly famous. On his best days, he was also a more sensitive singer than he had sometimes been in his Hollywood period.
Mario’s singing is generally excellent, especially when you take into account he was to die so soon after recording this.
All the tracks are in stereo, but all is not well with their sound. All the Mario Living Stereo recordings seem to suffer from distortion and edgy sound particularly with Mario’s voice when he sings loudly, which is quite often.

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
