Notes and Editorial Reviews

The best thing about the Caruso legend is that it's more than true. If you've never heard him, whatever you have heard about him can't do justice to how good he really was: the golden bigness of the voice, the dramatic genius and generosity of spirit that he projected. Fortunately, as the first vocal superstar of the Victrola age, he made hundreds of recordings that survive to give substance to the legend.
CARUSO IN LOVE combines favorite opera arias by Verdi, Puccini, and Donizetti with popular love songs of the period, including one by Ruggiero Leoncavallo, Caruso's friend and the composer of 'I Pagliacci.' The excellent transfers of these 78 rpm sides made for Victor between 1906 and 1920 are the result of the epic remastering project
