"I was a teenager back in the 1950's, and every time I saw Connie Stevens on television I thought she was enough to make a preacher want to kick out a stained glass window. I even saw her a couple of times on a short-lived sit-com with George Burns. So when I noticed her albums were re-released, I had to get them. I have to say I found this one the best of the lot, mainly because it contains quite a few standards that endure the test of time. While she sounds great on all of her CD's, this one has the back-up arrangements and production qualities that call for repeated listenings."
Not up to the previous two, but still nice

"On the cusp of abandoning TV fame for the movies, Connie's selection of songs here reflects a new, mature mood, and while it's not a stiff, it's just a touch on the bland side. "Because You're Mine" is lovely, "Hajji Baba" is lively, but "Dancing in the Dark", "Long Hot Summer" and several others are interchangeable. Connie's still sounding wonderful, but her best songs are on "Cricket" and "Conchetta". B-"

"With a teeny-tiny voice Connie Stevens through careful planning, attention to detail and sheer force of personality compiled a string of impressive albums for Warner Brothers. This was the best, recorded in Germany with a large orchestra. The eclectic song list reflects Stevens' own keen awareness of popular music and fondness for odd, neglected songs. The album is beautiful and enchanting start to finish. And Stevens is a sensitive and versatile singer, making the most of what is little more than a whisper. This album was very popular and justly so. It hasn't dated a bit and still sounds fresh and intriguing."
