"Jukebox Joni is a Joni James album that really shows off her great voice! Joni James doesn't get the recognition that she deserves but hopefully as her CDs continue to sell people will remember her all over again. The sound quality is very good and the artwork is great!
"Somebody Else Is Taking My Place" starts the CD with Joni singing her heart out on this beautiful torch song! The upbeat melody belies the sadness of the lyrics. Joni sings this wonderfully and she never misses a beat! The backup chorus enhances the natural beauty of this number. "You Are My Sunshine" slows down the pace somewhat as Joni delivers this like the pro she always was! Joni sings "You Are My Sunshine" so sweetly that I think Joni's rendition is THE definitive rendition of this classic love song.
"Teach Me To Forget You" features Joni squarely front and center--where she deserves to be! The backup chorus again works well for this ballad; and Joni sings this very sweetly. "I Need You So" again showcases Joni's fine vocal talents and the strings are used to great advantage. "I Need You So" is a beautiful number that you can slow dance to with your sweetheart late at night in your living room--it's THAT good.
"I Almost Lost My Mind" has great percussion and the brass really round out the musical arrangement. Joni sings this to perfection and beyond! I love every minute of it. "I Almost Lost My Mind" is easily a major highlight of this album.
"Don't Let The Neighbors Know" places Joni front and center--and the backup chorus works well for this ballad. This torch song sparkles like gold when Joni sings it; she delivers this so well it stuns me with its beauty. Awesome! Listen also for "Forgive A Fool;" this is a classic love song that gets the royal treatment from Joni as she performs this brilliantly! The strings work well and this number holds its own very well. "Vaya Con Dios" is also another beautiful highlight of this CD; Joni sings this without a flaw and the guitar arrangement is very pretty.
This certainly is one Joni James CD her fans won't want to miss! This CD is sure to please fans of classic pop vocals as well. It's even an excellent starter CD for people just getting to know the wonderful artistry of the great Joni James.

"Wish this disc had more of her hits, the "A Portrait Of" collection is excellent quality and has more titles, bigger hits."
