This two-fer from Collectables features a pair of out-of-print LPs by easy listening artist Peter Nero: I’ve Gotta Be Me and Summer of ’42, originally issued in 1969 and 1970. These 26 remastered tracks find the pianist interpreting hits of the era including “Hey Jude,” “(They Long to Be) Close to You,” “Never My Love,” “Make It with You” and “You’ve Got a Friend.” This is an enjoyable but nonessential reissue chosen from Peter Nero’s wealth of back catalog.
