2 LPs on 1 CD: WHY CAN'T I WALK AWAY (1966)/STAY WITH ME (1968).
Recorded in Hollywood, California. Originally released on RCA.
This reissue pairs two of crooner Vic Damone's '60s albums, Why Can't I Walk Away/Stay With Me. Damone conquers bossa nova on Stay With Me, utterly diffusing the compelling tension of the style with his own easy listening charm. Why Can't I Walk Away contains many movie themes alongside the typical pop ballad staples. The title cut is from Why Can't I Walk Away, "Watch What Happens" is from The Umbrellas of Cherbourg, and even a song from The Party, "Nothing to Lose," is included. ~ Wade Kergan
