The Three Tenors were a popular operatic singing group during the 1990s and early 2000s, consisting of Spaniards Plácido Domingo and José Carreras and Italian Luciano Pavarotti. The trio began their collaboration with a performance at the ancient Baths of Caracalla in Rome, Italy on 7 July 1990, the eve of the 1990 FIFA World Cup Final. Zubin Mehta conducted the orchestra of Maggio Musicale Fiorentino and the orchestra of Teatro dell'Opera di Roma.
The most devoted fans of the Three Tenors (José Carreras, Plácido Domingo, and Luciano Pavarotti) may already have the music included in this album of greatest hits taken from their concerts in Rome (1990), Los Angeles (1994), and Paris (1998), but for listeners new to the singers, this disc makes a good introduction. The repertoire is weighted toward the Latinate, featuring primarily popular song and opera excerpts from Italy, Spain, and Latin America, but also included are songs from The Merry Widow, Carousel, Singin' in the Rain, and West Side Story
They're billed as The Legendary 3 Tenors of Soul and they're all from Philly: William Hart of The Delfonics, born 1945, and his signature hit "La-La Means I Love You" from 1968. There's Ted Mills of Blue Magic, born 1947, and his signature hit "Sideshow" from 1974. Finally, Russell Thompkins Jr. of The Stylistics, born 1951, and his signature hit "Betcha By Golly, Wow" from 1972. The lead goes to The Stylistics' Thompkins, still the greatest of these singers, even if he sounds less creamy three decades on, just as Blue Magic's Mills is slightly less supple. A more accurate sobriquet for these artists might be Legendary 3 Falsettos of Soul; that's why the more conventional tenor of The Delfonics' Hart never gets a full lead here.
