"I'm elated to see this album back in print, since I lost my vinyl original years ago. Even though the recording is 5 stars to my ears, I'm well aware that the interpretations lack the complex drama of a Sinatra reading or the imaginative textures of a Nelson Riddle arrangement.But Jeffries' rich, mellow and confident baritone takes us back to an era when popular vocalists, like their classical counterparts, actually tried to produce a lovely sound. While my classmates were losing their minds to the Beatles or making out to the creepy androgynous vibrato of Johnny Mathis, I was cutting my musical teeth on Herb Jeffries. As an active musician/pianist to this day, I don't regret the choice. No way I'd waste my time playing "I Want to Hold Your Hand," "Hey Jude," or "Mr. Wonderful." On the other hand, tunes like "It's Easy to Remember," "End of a Love Affair," "If You Could See Me Now" continue to fall from my fingers where, thanks to Mr. Jeffries, they were encoded for life."
Oh man, I'm 16 years old and he makes me swoon

"I am in love with this man, and I'm 16! His voice is simply the best and so is this cd!!! My Grandma took me to Palm Springs and we saw the 90 year old Jeffries and still sounded like he does on this classic 1950's album! GREAT baby!!!"
A beautifully and lushly arranged lp, now on CD!

"This is a great late nite romance cd, and yes that is Barbara Eden from I Dream Of Jeannie on the cover. this is Herb Jeffires most romantic lp, from the Bethleham label. Jeffries appealing baritone sounds rich and full, with the lush arrangements by Russ Garcia(of Fantastica: Music From Outer Space). A great variety of standards are given difinitive treatment by this great vocalist. A must buy."
