CARUSO FAVORITES by S D Rodrian
Here are (only) a few of my favorite pieces from
the discography of the greatest singer of all time.
I have "stereolized" them to make it easier on those
of us who like to listen to them on headphones
(monophonic recordings on headphones always give
me a headache). If Caruso's voice, in your opinion,
somehow acquires an otherwise absent "presence"
(and thus becomes more "understandable" to those
few of you as yet unfamiliar with the nobility and
beauty of this astonishing singer's voice... well, that's
just even better, isn't it).
Note: These tracks are taken directly from 78 discs.
I ran a "pop & click" remover on them plus Noise
Reduction and this does tend to modify the overall
sound (the stereo-fying also changes the quality of
the sound), though I think it all worthwhile).

Some of these recording are more than 100 years old,
therefore I assume them to be in the public domain.
If you know for a fact they are not, and you are able
and willing to produce documentation of this, I
would greatly appreaciate it if you'd let me know.
