AllMusic Review by

This collector's LP gathers many of singer Lee Wiley's appearances from the Eddie Condon Town Hall radio series. Virtually all of the performances are currently available, scattered throughout the extensive Jazzology CD reissuance of the Condon broadcasts, but for those listeners primarily interested in Wiley's ballad vocals, this is a good way to collect them. She is backed by the Condon gang and is almost exclusively in the spotlight during the 14 brief numbers. Highlights include "I've Got a Crush on You," "You're Lucky to Me," "Sugar" and the lighthearted "Down With Love."
