AllMusic Review by

Politely!/Swingin' Pretty gathers two of Keely Smith's highest-charting vocal pop albums on one CD. Billy May's arrangements on Politely! and Nelson Riddle's work on Swingin' Pretty complement Smith's sweetly impassioned readings of "On the Sunny Side of the Street," "East of the Sun and West of the Moon," "Stormy Weather," "Someone to Watch Over Me," and other romantic standards. Smooth yet swinging, Politely!/Swingin' Pretty captures Smith at the peak of her powers.
