Although the album has appeared as part of a Vocalion issue a few years ago, it is nice to have the album on its own as it was first issued on the Decca label.
This is a young Anthony Newley trying out his vocal without the big vibratto that later stylized his performances. A classic album worth the price with some tracks worthy of Sinatra!
Anthony Newley was much more than a singer as this album will prove.
Purchase, pour a fifth of scotch and enjoy!

This is a wonderful album of songs with a heartbreak theme or songs for suicide lovers and sung to perfection by Anthony Newley with wonderful arrangements by British arranger Eric Rogers, all the twelve songs are well known standards by great writers and the album is very well recorded at the English Decca studios in the early sixties, a must have album in my opinion but a word of warning about this CD it has been made from a vinyl transfer but in it's defence it is a very quiet pressing and is perfectly fine but it's worth the purchase at the low price to gain access to this wonderful album.
