"Mayes hits her mark with this CD, now a standard in my rotation. I used to go to hear Sally whenever she performed in Dallas and her unique style and range show through on this CD. An incredibly engaging performer, her CD draws you in and makes you want more! Being a true Sally fan for years, I have introduced many people to her music and they always ask "When's her next CD coming out?" Too many favorites on this CD to single out just one. New York is lucky to have Sally."
Buy this album!!!!!!!!!

"Sally Mayes is one incredible singer! She takes many of these wonderful songs and makes them her own. Two of the best songs on the album show off not only her singing, but her acting ability: "If" and the beautiful "Our Private World." This is a fantastic collection of songs by Jules Styne, Leonard Bernstein, and many others. Buy it!!!!!"
When its good its very very good...

"...and when its bad, its still ok.sally mayes, who so excelled in the revival of "she loves me" does a fine job with the comden & green songbook, equally mixing the familiar with the unusual. the best is her performances of the sadly neglected songs from "hallelujah baby", but i found her reworking of the "on the town" songs a bit disappointing -- not that theyre bad, theyre just not fresh like the other material on the album. and oh my, her version of "our private world" is quite nice indeed. but the absolute highlight for me is the medley of "my own morning" and "learn to be lonely", the only song included from the underrated "doll's life". there she soars! is it a must have? no. but is it a should have? you betcha."
