New York raised pop crooner Jerry Vale was not only a popular album seller, he reached the singles charts nine times during the 1960s. This CD brings together two of Vale's most popular albums from the '60s, the era in which Vale was a frequent chart topper as well as popular concert artist. Among the highlights are "Have You Looked Into Your Heart", which was a #1 Adult Contemporary Hit in 1964, plus the standards "Old Cape Cod", and "All The Way".

Originally released on Columbia.
Singer Jerry Vale never regained the same success on the pop charts that he experienced with his recordings from the late '50s, but the quality of his music and his romantic high-tenor voice remained timeless. These two releases, originally on Columbia, contain two complete albums of the standard love songs for which Vale is so well-known. Be My Love is from 1965, while Have You Looked Into Your Heart was released the following year. Both sessions could have been interchangeable, providing 24 elegant tracks of note, especially to collectors who now have the opportunity to buy these albums as they were originally released, cover art and song sequence intact. ~ Al Campbell
