Semi-phonetic titles[edit]

Tidying the "article", I've discovered what I hadn't noticed before — that the original articles were created very peculiarly; many of the titles of arias and songs seems to have been written down semi-phonetically, and without consistency (for example, I've so far found "Vesti la giubba" as "Veste la jubba" and "Vesti la yubba"). I've begun correcting them, but if anyone would like to pitch in and help... --Mel Etitis (Μελ Ετητης) 14:30, 25 September 2005 (UTC)

Proposed merge from French repertoire part I[edit]

Any objections to this? - N (talk) 22:12, 12 January 2006 (UTC)

Seeing as nobody objected, and it made sense to me, I have performed the merge. - N (talk) 20:34, 21 January 2006 (UTC)

di Capua (Caruso-1903)[edit]

O sole mio (Giovanni Capurro-Edwardo di Capua) : Ed u ardo (+ Alfredo Mazzuchi) (C) 1898 
  • Mi dispiace: questo Mazzuchi is missing  :-) Tanti auguri dal Belgio and nice pages, indeed! Stephan KŒNIG

Merged some more albums[edit]

I merged a number of albums to this page and made some others just redirect here. If anyone disagrees, please feel free to revert any of my changes. -Big Smooth 16:09, 5 July 2006 (UTC)

Caruso 2000 released in 1957?!?[edit]

I'm prety sure it was released in 1999, but someone may know more than me...? NewYork1956 (October 23, 2006)


Made a stab at corrections, others no doubt lurking, and some consistency required for listing composers/works. Full composer names seems very extravagant. Have started a reference system, can folks who know please start listing the CD Catalogue numbers as footnotes, as I have done for one example? Otherwise all this information is entirely unreferenced, contrary to wp holy principles! Cheers, Eebahgum (talk) 16:10, 19 October 2009 (UTC

A Complete overhaul of this article is needed[edit]

This article is a mess. It should be completely deleted and rewritten as a "proper" discography of Caruso's recordings in chronological order, complete with recording dates, matrix numbers, assisting artists and other such information. Since Caruso's recordings are now in the public domain, there are too many CD reissues to list. I would only include reissues from the original copyright holders (Sony/BMG/RCA and EMI) as well as a few issues from some of the more respected historic reissue labels (Naxos, Pearl).

I will be glad to undertake this task if others agree.

Dear editor,
For my money, what you propose would be very useful, and would be much better than the present article, which is worthless because it does not say which versions of the recordings are in each set. However I would suggest that you should create a new page called 'Enrico Caruso Discography (originals)' and give it an introductory paragraph explaining that it is the discography of originals and not of transfers. Thus whatever has been done here can be argued over separately from your extremely useful contribution and will not contaminate it. Only by starting your own page de novo will you avoid having others muddling your work with the kind of stuff that is listed here. Concentrate only on the first versions: transfers of all kinds can be dealt with in other articles, and to do this you could just go straight ahead without reference to the present page. I hope you will do this (if you have access to the info) as I think it would be greatly useful. If you are going to undertake this, it would be best if you could create an identifying User account as other editors will no doubt wish to post you on your User talk page, to which I will add a copy of this message. (If you create a named User account, you can copy this correspondence to the User account's new talk page.) Your new article will need to cite sources for the information which you give. If you wish to discuss any of this, please send me a message at my talk page. Eebahgum (talk) 01:33, 27 October 2009 (UTC)

Still needs a complete rewrite, if someone has the time. Ideally, it should be a list of the records with recording dates and a summary of current complete CD editions. Markhh (talk) 06:34, 21 November 2010 (UTC)
