AllMusic Review by

Tall, striking Patti Drew's sensuous alto is always a pleasure to listen to even when the material and arrangements are lacking. This LP consists of two minor hits, "I've Been Here All the Time" and "Hard to Handle"; the many remakes include "Fever," "Save the Last Dance For Me," "I Who Have Nothing," "Midnight Confessions," and "What the World Needs Now Is Love." Manager/producer Peter Wright was obviously priming the Evanston, IL, native for the lucrative Vegas/Reno/Tahoe casino clubs, as the album lacks an edge and disappointed her fan base.
