Notes & Reviews:

"Longtime collectors still refer to this Leontyne Price recital as the 'blue album' because of its cover. No matter what you call it, here is some of the most beautiful singing ever set to record. Price never sang her two signature roles, Aida and the Trovatore Leonora, any better. The gorgeous smokey timbre, the thrilling top, the luscious middle, and above all, the wonderful curve of the phrases and the artful portamento - these are classic performances..." -Milazzo, ARG
