AllMusic Review by

Happiness is a collection of songs thast constantly crosses the line between country and pop. Her hit, "Love Explosion," would have sounded equally at home on pop radio in 1977 while her duet with Norro Wilson, one of her co-writers on the tune, is pure country. That pattern doesn't hold, though, for the covers on this record. "My Happiness" is done very much the way Connie Francis recorded it but yodeling, on her rendition of "Lovesick Blues", is about the only tip of the hat to country music.
