Italian crooner Alfio has covered the Bon Jovi ballad `Always` on his latest new album `Classic Rewinds`.

The Sydney based singer is paying tribute to Italian-American artists with the album and decided he wanted to “bring mainstream sensibility to the millions of contemporary fans around the world,” by showcasing the Bon Jovi piece alongside the works of Perry Como, Dean Martin and Mario Lanza.

The album kicks off with the Como classic ‘Papa Loves Mambo’ and runs through a group of evergreens from Vic Damone, Frank Sinatra, Al Martino, Tony Bennett and Franki Valli.

Alfio concludes the collection with a few of his own. (Well, he is an Italian-Australian so that is close enough).

The album is out independently through One Voice Entertainment.

Tracks are:

Papa Loves Mambo (Perry Como)
I Have But One Heart (Vic Damone)
Where Do I Begin (Al Martino)
South Of The Border (Frank Sinatra)
The Loveliest Night Of The Year (Mario Lanza)
Buona Sera (Louis Prima)
The Impossible Dream (Jerry Vale)
Forget Him (Bobby Rydell)
Stranger In Paradise (Tony Bennett)
Don’t Let The Stars Get In Your Eyes (Dean Martin)
Jealousy (Frankie Laine)
My Eyes Adored You (Frankie Valli)
Always (Bon Jovi)
Dream Lover (Bobby Darin)
Venus (Frankie Avalon)
Beauty School Dropout (Frankie Avalon)
Our Dream (Alfio)
Voce Pura - Reprise (Alfio)
Dream Of You (Alfio)
