AllMusic Review by

Georgie Does His Thing with Strings draws on arranger Keith Mansfield's past as a sound library maestro to create a lush, sweeping approach with a distinctively cinematic edge. Its moody, mellow sensibilities perfectly complement Georgie Fame's increasingly mature vocals, which sidestep the R&B inflections of his previous records in favor of a poignant style rooted in jazz and traditional pop--the inclusion of Bacharach/David gems like "This Guy's in Love with You" and "A House Is Not a Home" further underscores the session's sophistication and elegance.
