Vinyl Mono 16/44 (RCA) Tito Schipa – Operatic Recital (1924-1928)

front-small-boxsetOne of the few records I got from my beloved uncle Totò after his dead
Admirers of the incomparable tenor Tito Schipa will not want to be without this. No less than 15 arias Schipa recorded between 1924 and 1928 are included. Transfers have been made from clean, faultless 78 originals, some of them very rare. Schipa’s voice seems to emerge successfully from the special Nimbus transferring process. The result is magic. What a wonderful voice! This is one of those rare cds that can be played over and over a hundred times and the music and emotion remains as fresh as the first listening!

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.
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
