(5 out of 5 stars)

"this is a cd i could play all day every day for thr rest of my life.lena horne has the most glorious voice that is enhanced with the lush orchestrations of her husband lennie hayton for many of the songs.her rendition of "paradise"is a gem,her sensual humming makes me melt,ah yes! sensual not these little energiser bunnies parading around in skimpy costumes calling themselves singers,they are little girls,lena is rather obviously a W-O-M-A-N.her yearning vocal on "someone to watch over me" is pure honey.this is one great cd from a very under rated artist."
Wonderfully Lena!

"If ever there was a fine example of Lena Horne's work, this is the album. I first heard the album as background music at a dinner party, and paid more attention to it rather than to the party banter. Having heard other Lena albums, this one is most captivating, and wonderfully, Lena. The title track,"Love Is The Thing", is fresh and different. "Where or When", a song never on my personal top hits chart, is now in the top ten. But, the jewel of the album is her version of "Darn That Dream"! Wonderfully recorded and produced, with timeless and undated arrangements, the album could have been recorded today."
Lena backed by hot jazz combos and strings...

"Since there isn't much out there from Lena's 50's career this is the only collection available. It finds Miss Horne backed by hot jazz combos on such numers as "Love Is The Thing" and strings for instance on "Fun To Be Fooled." This is an overall satisfying compilation by a fine pop singer, who at times does sing straight ahaed jazz."
