Till

By Jerry Vale

Very Good Condition

Jerry Vale made the shift from 50's style crooner to 60's pop singer almost effortlessly. The arrangements on this album by Joe Gardner are busy, rhythmic, and upbeat. Some of the tempos are rather fast, but Vale has the technical difficulties for his voice well in hand. The most touching number for me is Les Bicyclettes de Belsize, an excellent example of what Vale could do with a song with an international flavor. Put Your Head On My Shoulder is as comfortable for him as any Italian flavored 50's ballad. I think his phrasing is a little uncomfortable in parts of MacArthur Park, but his high notes in the song are thrilling. The album's sound engineering is vivid and upfront in the typical late 60's manner, and there seems to be some distortion on the vocal tracks, although that may be just a defect in my sound system. Finally, it is nice to have Abraham, Martin, and John on the album as a reminder of the angst in American culture at this time. Vale sings it as persuasively as anyone.
