"Vikki Carr sounds terrific on all these tracks (when doesn't she sound terrific?), but with only 10 songs here, this is hardly representative of her fantastic, wide-ranging career. I wish Capitol (and Columbia) would reissue her English-language material, giving it the respect it deserves."
Not representative of the best of her Liberty/UA years!

"Even though Vikki Carr only had 2 real hits during her Liberty/UA tenure, this budget set does not contain the highlights of that phase of her career. Where are the good songs like "Sunday Mornin' Coming Down","The Lesson","San Francisco","Singing My Song" and last but not least "Eternity"? While these songs were not hits, they were songs that were immediately identified with Vikki and should be included in any comprehensive collection. I would recommend the British releases over this CD. Will someone please get Sony Music to re-release Vikki's English albums of the 70s on CD? Great stuff like "One Hell Of A Woman", "Ms America","I'd Do It All Again" and last but not least "Six Weeks Every Summer, Christmas Every Other Year" remain unavailable on CD!!"

"This budget disc on the Curb label presents a small sampling of Vikki Carr's earlier hit recordings, including "It Must Be Him", and "With Pen in Hand".
Equally enjoyable are the Broadway standards "So in Love", and "Surrey With the Fringe on Top", which Vikki performs with an energetic verve. These were staples in her nightclub act for many years. "Bluesette" (one of my personal favourite Vikki Carr numbers) is also happily included here.
For fans of the vivacious Vikki, this disc is a very nice surprise!
