This album was recorded on
location in Rome, Italy, with lush orchestrations under the direction of
Nick Perito and an Italian chorus under the direction of Ray Charles. Not
generally known is the guiding hand of RCA's Steve Sholes who is also
credited as having urged Perry to record in Nashville. The recording
quality of these sessions is second to none and Perry's vocal performance,
if not his Italian, is second to none. The mixing of Italian and English
lyrics is charming as is the gentle accent of the chorus.
