Notes & Reviews:

The recordings on this CD are taken from Alfred Kraus's first recordings. The small selection of songs is taken from his two 1958 LPs with Spanish and Italian Songs.

American Record Guide, September/October 2013
Kraus presented a fine figure on stage and was always a wholly believable, romantic hero. One was always happy to see his name on any cast list. He had a vast band of admirers who will doubtless be over the moon to have these performances by their idol finally well transferred onto CD.
