AllMusic Review by

Patty, not Maxene, Andrews was the lead singer of the Andrews Sisters, with Maxene and third sister Laverne providing harmony and backup. But since the sisters split up, Maxene obviously has learned to sing lead, since she projects a definite identity on this, her debut solo album (which came nearly 50 years after she started recording). The selections are a good mixture of Andrews Sisters favorites, songs from their era, and newer numbers with an appropriate good-time sense consistent with Andrews' entertaining singing. A modest success, but a success all the same.
