This brief album contains, without crediting them as such, excerpts from the soundtrack to the Fred Astaire television special Astaire Time, first broadcast on September 28, 1960. Astaire recites Cole Porter's "Miss Otis Regrets" with Barrie Chase making interjections, turning the number into a comic sketch. He also recites Porter's similarly humorous "Thank You So Much, Mrs. Lowsborough-Goodby" (misnamed "The Letter-The Weekend" on the cover), and then performs a medley of songs from his movies. The material and the performances are fine, but the presentation on this album is shoddy.
