"A magnificent song and aria recital. Some of Caruso's richest and most thrilling performances on record are here... On some of these, in the present transfers, I get a slight rattle, probably inherent in the recording, the kind of thing that in the old days we would ascribe to a defective sound-box. Partly for this reason and partly in deference to those times (when every Caruso record was an event) I do recommend playing single tracks rather than using the CD as a continuous recital record."
"A remarkable series is in the making...The sheer vigor of his voice is fully evident. Within a year or two we hear the singer today still quite reasonably represented as the world's greatest tenor...Ward Marston's restorations are remarkably listenable."
