"This CD is an anthology of fifteen songs taken from Blossom's own label, Daffodil Records. It is an assemblage of some of her best work. My personal favorite is "Bring All Your Love Along," which she recorded with Bob Dorough. At the present time this song can be found on no other Blossom Dearie CD. Although some of the material can now be found on other BD discs, there is a sufficient number of songs found nowhere else to make this pressing an important part of your collection. To be honest, on any of Blossom's recordings there are some songs I like better than others. This one contains the cream of the crop from start to finish."
Blossom is a hoot!

"The word "iconoclast" was invented for Blossom Dearie, a performer who doesn't quite fit into any category. Not only is she a gas, she chooses some smart and funny songwriters. This CD, from her own Daffodil label, is a combination of live and studio material, the live being better and funnier in my opinion. (Much of the studio stuff is an attempt at campy fun that doesn't always quite come off.) Some highlights include "I'm Hip," "Bruce," "The Ballad of the Shape of Things To Come," "My Attorney Bernie," "I'm Shadowing You," "Answering Machine," and her anthem song, "Peel Me A Grape." Blossom has an affinity for the smart and sophisticated (yet very silly) songs of Sheldon Harnick and Dave Frishberg, and they make the most amusing material in the collection. Why these two aren't better-known is a mystery to me.

Most of these were recorded with an aging Blossom at the piano, playing to a very small and intimate audience. She's charming, eccentric, and wry. There's no one quite like BD today, and that's sad. Grab this CD, skip past the occasional dud, and enjoy some really good belly laughs.

"This warm and highly professional performance reaches heights of delight difficult to describe. Blossom Dearie's musicality, exquisite timing and sheer magic provide a concert of unsurpassable delicacy, joy, tinged always with humour drawn from wry observation.

Not to be missed."
