The combination of these Matt Monro albums, Walk Away and Invitation to the Movies, provide pleasant vocal interpretations of pop and Hollywood standards. The familiar melodies of "Georgia on My Mind," "Alfie," and "Born Free" hold up exceptionally well. These LPs were originally released on Liberty/Capitol in the mid-'60s and had been out of print until Collectables reissued them in 2000. ~ Al Campbell
