AllMusic Review by

A heartfelt, deeply sincere collection of love songs and ballads that's sweet but never saccharine, Eydie in Love ranks among Eydie Gorme's most consistent and accomplished LPs, thanks as much to her poignant vocals as to the impeccable backings of conductor and arranger Don Costa, whose feather-light, moonstruck sensibilities perfectly capture the fluttery emotions of budding romance. The songs capture all facets of love and loss, spanning from the joy of "Love Letters" to the sorrow of "In the Wee Small Hours" -- then 27 years old, Gorme manages to articulate both girlish infatuation and world-weary resignation with authority and understanding, all rendered with the signature warmth that makes her records so appealing.
