"It's wonderful to have this early "crossover" album available again. Aparently, Miss Price was known for leaning on a piano at parties and singing this kind of thing. It's a shame she didn't do more of it. Everything on the album is interesting, and sung with feeling (and, in a few cases, just the right amount of archness or irony), some are very operatic in approach, some quite jazzy, all accompanied perfectly by Previn and the varying accompanying forces. I don't think the two Previn songs have ever been recorded elsewhere, and both are very good songs, indeed."

"I was pleasently suprised on first hearing this cd.First off,the sound quality was excellent for the period.I would also like to point out that leontyne's english diction was even better than I hoped.She didn't over sing these little gems of the american song book,but brought them to life with great,feeling,expressiveness,and passion.Her voice sounds very beautiful & rich with many low sultry notes.
I will never stop listening to this little known treasure.Pick up this out of print cd before it's gone.A must have for leontyne fans.Fabulous recording."
