AllMusic Review by

This CD reissue brings back Bob Dorough's definitive album. The vocalist-pianist -- who is joined by guitarist Al Schackman, bassist Ben Tucker, and drummer Percy Brice -- was in top creative form for the set. His renditions of "Baltimore Oriole" and "Lazy Afternoon" are haunting, while his versions of "I've Got Just About Everything," "Better Than Anything," and "'Tis Autumn" are quite memorable. Dorough even manages to do a credible job on Bob Dylan's "Don't Think Twice," and in 1966 must have been one of the few jazzmen to cover a rock tune. Dorough's unusual voice and swinging piano are heard at their best throughout the highly recommended release.
