Re-mastered and remixed for SACD surround sound from the original 1999 recording.
Peter Dawson was the Pavarotti of his time, popular enough to have his own fan club which exists to this day, and made over 2000 recordings between 1905 and 1958 (he died in 1961).
Opera baritone Gregory Yurisich has compiled a wonderful tribute in this recital of songs made famous by the great Australian baritone.
‘Old Father Thames’, ‘On the Road to Mandalay’, and other ballads are treated with affectionate gusto with terrific orchestral backing by the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra.
The music is cheerfully melodic and humorously patriotic and sentimental.
Beautifully packaged with new cover and label artwork.
Digipak with picture disc and 42-page colour booklet with essays and all song texts.
“An ideal CD to bring memories of yesteryear flooding back... Gregory Yurisich sings with style and precision... resembles a Robson in timbre, wide compass and powerful delivery.” MusicWeb International (on the Original CD Release)
