The Foreign Affair/Reunion in Rhythm two-fer CD combines Frankie Laine's 1958 album Foreign Affair with Reunion in Rhythm, released three years later. These LPs were originally released on Columbia Records and had been out of print until being reissued in 2003 on Collectables. In addition to Reunion's contributions by arranger Michel Legrand, this pleasant set includes familiar songs like "Laura," "Autumn Leaves," "Mona Lisa," and "Dream a Little Dream of Me." Those who appreciate easy listening music should find this a welcome addition to their collection. ~ Al Campbell
