ALMOST 100 YEARS AGO
From almost a century ago comes what is said to be the greatest voice (as opposed to the greatest singer or artist) of them all - Enrico Caruso (1873 - 1921) singing from 1916, scratches and all, O Sole Mio. He was in San Francisco during the 1906 earthquake.
He is joined today by Charles Aznvour - Yesterday when I was young; Vera Lynn - The faithful Hussar (a favourite of mine) and Danny Kaye (Walter Mitty himself) with Life could not better be.
Enrico and crew are here.
