"The years of Mario Sammarco's career saw a glut of great Italian baritones....Sammarco's voice was clearly a fine one, sturdy, rounded and easy at the top....transfers are up to Pearl's high standards, and many collectors will be grateful for the bringing together on one CD of so many rare and historically interesting 78s."
- Patrick Bade, INTERNATIONAL CLASSIC RECORD COLLECTOR, May, 1995
"Giuseppe Mario Sammarco sang with outstanding success in most of the world’s great opera houses alongside some of the greatest artists of his time….He was equally well-regarded in America…."
