AllMusic Review by

This 7" single gives us two examples of Leni Stern's moving songwriting and superb, jazz-inspired guitar. Leni's voice gently climbs from a conversation tone to an angelic lilt in such a way to remain intimate, personal. Leni sings to you, the listener, not an anonymous audience. Leni's expressive lyric has an accessible pop quality without ever becoming overly sugary or begging commercial appeal.
