This album presents songs culled from Dinah Shore's television performances of the late 1950s and early 1960s, most from her own program, The Dinah Shore Chevy Show. Given that they are transcribed from live broadcasts, they are surprisingly polished, with Shore in typically, warm, assured voice. The arrangements are often too splashy, but the vocal always dominates. The monophonic, limited-frequency recordings tend to sound boxy, and Shore rarely sings her better-known songs, so this isn't an album for casual fans. On the other hand, ardent fans will rejoice at the chance to hear otherwise unavailable recordings on which Shore sometimes performs tunes she never sang in a recording studio.
