Notes & Reviews:

This newest release from Nimbus' acclaimed "Prima Voce" series investigates the early history of the recording industry, which would hold little interest for us today had it not coincided with the unique artisty of Caruso and Melba, Chaliapin and Ponselle. This value-priced sampler features over 70 minutes of highlights from the Nimbus Prima Voce catalog.
