"This 2-albums-on-1-cd package is unlike the the Varese compilation of her 1950s hits, the only other Caterina Valente music I am familiar with.
The songs and the recording style are very different for these mid-60's albums.
The recordings are mostly stereo, compared with the 1950s, and the songs are very 'trendy' covers, particularly on the first album on the cd. It could have been called "All the hits of 65", and sounds like a Claudine Longet album, light and airy. I liked a few of the covers, but in most cases, the original is a far better record.
The second album on the cd has better songs and production.
However, the engineer who was responsible for pairing the two albums on a single cd should have boosted the volume a bit for the second album, as it is at a distinctly lower volume than the first one, resulting in the cd seeming to drop in volume a bit after track 13."
