@DrewDad,
never heard Maynard's version...what a joyous song...check out Manhattan Transfer's version...it's more Broadway than Weather Report

There's another recording from 1954 where her voice is judged better - but I am used to this one, from 1961 -

Maria Callas, Gluck, Alceste -



Changed my mind - here's the 1954 -

@panzade,
I love Manhattan Transfer. Can't find their version of "Unchained Melody".

@ossobuco,
there might have been a couple of flat notes but what disturbs me more is the imbalance of volume between Maria and the orchestra....makes me wanna time-travel back and throttle the producer

@Letty,
Caruso and Robeson....wowee

I like the point the guy makes

"Sadly most people do not consider these qualities when discussing a voice, instead focusing on range or power. Yet it is these two qualities that make a voice expressive and beautiful"

make sure you read the contributor's notes...very well written

@DrewDad,
Why does the Pachelbel video feature a portrait of Mozart?
