The warm baritone of Herb Jeffries is showcased on a dozen ballads on this CD reissue. Russ Garcia's arrangements for a string orchestra match Jeffries' voice well, but there are no real surprises or variety. Jeffries sounds fine on such tunes as "Say It Isn't So," "When Your Lover Has Gone," "Angel Eyes" and "The End of a Love Affair," although the overall results are rather predictable.
