"A delightful compilation of songs sung by two excellent singers.
Favourites since I acquired the initial LPs this release gives
a bonus by providing some of the tracks in Stereo. Thoroughly
recommended to anybody who enjoys this type music.
SPEAKING OF NEAR PERFECTION!

"I originally purchased these albums 53 or so years ago when I had a crush on Oklahoma's beautiful "Laurie". That old vinyl has survived the years, but this CD encouraged me to listen to the Cassidy-Jones team again after many years. The romance of the musical selections and the chemistry of the artists is enchanting. The first group ("Speaking of Love") is definitely superior because the operetta genre is so well suited to Cassidy and Jones, and leaves you impressed with their respective ranges -- Jones especially is at her very, very best on this recording. If you enjoy these recordings, I recommend two others: the studio cast of "Brigadoon" with Cassidy and Jones, and also "Maggie Flynn" with original broadway cast featuring Cassidy and Jones. Artistically, theirs was a pairing made in music heaven!"
