Notes & Reviews:

Roy best, the lovable larrikin from melbourne, stole the hearts of the nation with his charm, sense of humour and magnificent tenor voice on operatunity oz. With this, his debut album with abc classics, you can luxuriate in such classics as 'nessun dorma', 'o sole mio', 'galway bay', 'ave maria' and 'stranger in paradise'. For fans of the show, this cd offers a glimpse of roy's incredible journey from mechanic to carpenter to major musical talent. 'heart's delight' confirms roy's place alongside the great tenors of this country.
