AllMusic Review by

One sang in French, the other in English, and that, in a nutshell, was easy listening vocal duo Sandler & Young's gimmick. Although they didn't approach every number that way, it became the formula for which they were best known. Their contrapuntal vocal arrangements often had a mesmerizing quality, and their monolingual efforts could be just as enjoyable. Spotlight On... collects 20 tracks from the mid- to late-'60s, including the favorite "Dominique" and a delightful French version of Johnny Cymbal's "Mr. Bass Man." Sandler & Young may have been a pair of hopelessly square lounge singers, but for a while they mined a vein of light intellectual pop that provided them with a successful album career.
