John Steane
Gramophone, May 2002

"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."

Turok’s Choice, March 2002

"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."
