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.
