"Listening to this recording now (as opposed to when it was recorded sometime in the mid 1950s) it sounds a bit campy. But you know, that's not a bad thing. I would guess that at the time it was released it sounded campy too. I think to expect less of Elaine Stritch would be foolish. Mind you these songs are not recorded without care are seriousness. They are simply fun, energetic and surprisingly sexy at times. Elaine Stritch will likely surprise you with the wonderful quality of her voice and good humour.
If you enjoy the vocalist/band arrangement style of the 50' and early 60s you will likely get a kick out of this CD. To be honest, as eclectic as my taste is I would likely have not purchased the disc myself. It was a gift--from Ms. Stritch herself. I gotta say, that woman gives a good gift and =still= knows how to sing a song or two."

"This is a superb album. Anyone who loves Stritch would be a fool to be without this in their collection. I've been a fan of this album for years and have not grown tired of it yet."

"Elaine Stritch has never been wasted in a musical number. Invariably, she adds intellegence, verve and panache, making the
bland, good (The object of my Affection), the good, great (That's my Boy), and the Great, Breathtaking (Are you having any Fun & You took Advantage of Me).
Alternately funny, sexy, wry and heartbroken, Stritch uses her superb instrument to its' fullest potential. This album reveals more than a great singer and actress at the top of her form, with every listening, you will find new dimensions.
During her long career, Elaine Stritch has impressed the likes of Robert Whitehead, Noel Coward and Stephen Sondheim with her tremendous talents. Buy this album to see what all the fuss is about!"
