The first album on this CD is On the Street Where You Live (1964). It's songs come mainly from Broadway musicals (3 of which are from West Side Story). Some have a bit of a jazz Latin beat that given them a little punch, while the rest are a mix of different styles. His swinging version of I Could Write A Book is one of my favorite renditions of this song.
The REAL treat on this CD is the second album, The Liveliest: At Basin Street East. This is a small club date Vic Damone recorded in 1963. Being a live date, the songs range from swingers to ballads, to small jazzy combos. Nevertheless, the orchestra backing him is not a huge one, so you do get that nice intimate feel. He speaks a little in between a few tracks, but it's mostly just the music. If you want to feel like you're in a hip jazz club in the early '60s, then this one is definitely for you.
And even better than just having these albums, BOTH are released here in full stereo, so the sound is clean and clear.
