AllMusic Review by

I GOT THE WORLD ON A STRING brings together a tasty sampling of tracks by vocalist Helen O'Connell. Best known for her tenure with Jimmy Dorsey and her duets with Bob Eberly, O'Connell exemplifies the warm vocal style, popular in the 1940s and '50s, that combined swing with traditional pop. Cheerful and sprightly, with just the right touch of nostalgia, O'Connell's work comes recommended to fans of Rosemary Clooney, Peggy Lee, and Jo Stafford.
