Title track, The Girl From Ipanema includes a vocal and sounds, perhaps, as though it was a track that Dipolmat decided to built this budget Bossa set around. The sample above is more representative of the LP's sound.

Vincent Edwards Sings

Unchained Melody
Vincent Edwards Sings
Star Of The TV Show "Ben Casey"
Orchestras Conducted by Dick Jacobs and Charles Bud Dant
Produced by Abby Greshler
Decca DL 74311
1962

From the back cover: Vincent Edwards is the rugged star of the popular television series, "Ben Casey," which depicts with authenticity and rare insight the personal and professional problems of doctors in a modern urban hospital, and which centers around a dedicated and idealistic young neurosurgeon. Born in Brooklyn, New York, Vince attended Ohio State University and The University Of Hawaii. He entered show business via New York's famous American Academy – his classmates included Grace Kelly, Anne Bancroft and John Cassavetes. No newcomers to television – his credits include memorable performances on "The Untouchables," G. E. Theater," and "Alfred Hitchcock Presents." His movie credits include "Serenade," "The Three Faces Of Eve," "The Night Holds Terror," "City Of Fear," Murder By Contact," and "The Killing."

From Billboard - July 16, 1962: The TV heart-throb, Vince Edwards, otherwise known as Dr. Ben Casey, shows off a warm singing style on this collection of romantic ballads. Although his singing style is merely adequate, his TV popularity particularly with the fems, is strong enough to make this album a solid seller. He does acceptable jobs on "I'll Walk Alone," "When I Fall In Love," "Lonesome Road" And "Unchained Melody." The ork backings are smooth and lush.
