Soap Opera Music

I got a request earlier this week after blogging about the B&B anniversary episode about John McCook's (Eric) singing. The actor had a European music release in the 1990s. If anyone is interested in a track listing visit: http://www.discogs.com/John-McCook-Sings-Bold-And-Beautiful-Lovesongs/release/1063687 I had read about this CD in the 90s in a soap publication, but since it was done for Finland, I've never heard it myself.
