For the First Time (Soundtrack)/Mario Lanza Sings Caruso Favorites Review

by Al Campbell

This two-fer from Collectables features a pair of out of print Mario Lanza LPs: For the First Time (1959) and Mario Lanza Sings Caruso Favorites (1960). Originally issued on RCA Victor, the Caruso album proves to be the stronger set; released posthumously, Lanza pays tribute to his idol. Highlights include "Serenata," "Lolita," and "La Mia Canzone."
