The Very Best of Mario Lanza

Classic recordings of all Lanza’s hits

Lanza the Man perhaps left a lot to be desired; Mario Lanza the Voice was the stuff of dreams.  Singers who grew up in the 1950s, among them Carreras and Domingo, were inspired by the sounds he produced.  Toscanini allegedly described his voice as being the greatest of the 20th century.
