I was 14 years old the first time I heard Jerry Vale’s voice. It was listening to the richly romantic vinyl album “I Hear A Rhapsody” in 1968, and was the beginning of a collection that continues to this day. That song, now with impressive digital remastering, is perfect for Jerry Vale’s vocal artistry. The song starts with dramatic, breath-taking orchestration that’s arranged and conducted by Glenn Osser. With a graceful and full-powered voice, Jerry begins his journey through this vocal masterpiece, hitting all the high notes with all his goose-bump-giving power and clarity....”And when I hear you call, so softly to me, I don’t hear a call at all, I hear a rhapsody...” The song is absolutely beautiful, and Jerry Vale puts everything he’s got into it, leaving you wanting more, and more you get! Every song on the “I Hear A Rhapsody” half of this CD collection is vocal artistry equal to a Renoir painting. Each song compliments the next, almost story-like, a love story, and it’s all due to Jerry’s professional, powerful, interpretation of the lyrics. It’s as if every song on the album was written just for Jerry Vale. Jerry’s trademark sliding vocals are perfect for “Stella By Starlight”. “It’s Easy To Remember” is a great follow-up to “Stella By Starlight”, the lyrics being like a sequel. And all the songs that follow continue the story, a story of lost loves, wanting love, finding love, heartache, love letters, and romance. There’s a couple of classics here. “Stardust”, nicely arranged and superbly sung by Jerry, and “Love Letters”, which is from the Academy Award nominated 1945 movie of the same title that starred Jennifer Jones. This exquisite digitally remastered album is worthy of a tuxedo, expensive champagne, and long-stem roses. The “There Goes My Heart” half of this collection recorded in 1965, is the peppier side of this double CD. Sounding better than ever with it’s digital remastering, the basses are deeper, and you can hear every instrument with crisp clarity, instruments you never heard on the vinyl version of this album. Jerry Vale is known for a couple of vocal styles that have made him famous. One of those styles, are his trademark grace notes, and the other, are his Dean Martin style rolling melodies. “There Goes My Heart” is a collection of both. With its better than average back-up singers, and vibrant orchestra being directed by Marty Manning, it’s a fun album with lots of toe-tapping sing-a-long type melodies. My three favorites are “There Goes My Heart”, “Just One More Chance”, and, “Somebody Else Is Taking My Place”. Once you listen to these songs, you’ll be hooked, finding yourself singing them to yourself throughout the day. This collection is one of Jerry Vale’s finest, his voice is powerful and clear, and his lyrical interpretations are pure poetry.. I highly recommend it to collectors and newcomers alike. I promise, you won’t be disappointed.
