This two-fer CD combines Jerry Vale's 1962 album (I Have but One Heart) and the follow-up (Arrivederci Roma). These LPs were originally released on Columbia Records and had been out of print until being reissued in 2002 on Collectables. Both albums capture Vale's beautiful renditions of romantic Italian love songs sung in his high tenor voice. Featuring 24 songs including "'O Sole Mio (My Sunshine)," "Just Say I Love Her (Dicitencello Vuie)," "Mama (Mamma)," and "Al Di La." There isn't much difference between these two sessions; both deliver enjoyable, romantic Vale that will satisfy his fans with great sound quality to boot. ~ Al Campbell
