(One of many old 78s in my collection. Dates are approximated as best as possible based on the labels and what information I can find on the ‘net. The sound quality on these is quite variable. I’ve cleaned the worst of the pops and skips as best as I can, but these won’t be anywhere near modern fidelity. Enjoy them for what they are.)

    I have an old RCA Victor two record set 45 RPM of Mario Lanza operataic Areas and Duets as sung in The Toast of New Orleans They are red seal records in Italian and French with the RCA Orchestra and with Soprano Elaine Malbin. It is in a box wit a write up of the song sung I got it in late l950’s. They are Madama Butterfly: Loave Duet, Verdi La Traviata:etc. Do you know the value of this?

    I have a 33 1/3 record of “The Toast of New Orleans” in which Lanza sings 5 arias and duets with Elaine Malbin. I’m having trouble finding any info on music websites. MME Butterfly “Love Duet”, “Brindisi”, “O Paradiso!”, “Flower Song”, “M’appari” Do you know the value of this?
