"She was Kay Kyser's singer, however she was also a favorite of jazz violenist Eddie South(she recorded a dozen sides with hsi jazz combo in the swing era). Simms has a rich and clear vocie and is able to swing, when called for, but is also great with a ballad. She sounds best when backed by jazz groups, or swinging big bands, although this cd puts her in the role of a pop singer, it still shows taht she is(after Doris Day), one of teh worlds most underrated singers)."
A great forgotten singer

"I discovered Ginny Simms while listening to Art Deco's Sophisticated Ladies. Even though this cd doesn't have the two songs included in that cd, it has a good collection.
It's a pity that this wonderful singer is forgotten. She has a distinctive torch voice. The cover for this album does not do justice for her. Ginny really was gorgeous, that ugly picture certainly doesn't show it.
There are plenty of good songs on this cd that are in my mind constantly like I'll Never Smile Again and What goes up must come down."
