Description

Get Mario Lanza: The Toast of Hollywood to enjoy popular Mario Lanza songs, including "Be My Love," "Ava Maria," "Romance," and "Day In, Day Out." This Mario Lanza CD set contains thirty songs, featuring six unreleased songs. Lanza got his start singing in the opera, but his talent soon brought him to the sound stages of MGM Studios, which made him a global star.



Full-Length Synopsis:

          Everything about it is great. I love everything that he sings. What I miss is you neglected to have "I'll Walk With God" on it from The Student Prince.

            His voice is magnificant and I have loved his music since I was a young child. His voice is relaxing, soothing, strong and unique. I wish he was still alive and singing living a joyful life. I am sure I am not the only one who miss his talent.

                I bought this for a friend of mine who is a big Mario Lanza fan. He really enjoyed it. Said that most if not all of his favorite songs were on it. Some were songs he had not heard on other compilations.

                    This CD is a birthday gift for my husband who turned 80 on Columbus Day. He grew up with the singing voice of Mario Lanza and was inspired by this great tenor to sing himself. The music selections are great and we will enjoy listening to it over and over again. Thank you for offering this CD at a special price.
