Album Review

The Best of the Mercury Years contains 25 tracks from Vic Damone's tenure at Mercury Records. Over the course of the compilation, the majority of the vocalist's hits for the label — including the number one "Breaking My Heart," "Por Favor," "Ebb Tide," and "My Heart Cries For You" — are included, as well as terrific lesser-known numbers which help make this album the definitive retrospective of Damone's stint with Mercury.

Customer Reviews

Vic Damone Shines

a great collection of early Damone recordings. Besides having an incredibly beautiful, virile voice, he had the musicianship and breath control to achieve a variety of musical effects appropriate to the material at hand. He could caress a phrase with his beautiful vibrato, or sing out to the back of the balcony. This album shows that versatility, and includes some real gems.
