A compilation of Lenny's early Cadence Records recordings with a slightly different track listing than his similarly titled 1963 album. Classified as easy listening, Welch's controlled but unbridled and passionate singing had an emotional edge not normally associated with the genre. A heart-drilling rendition of "Since I Fell for You" is an agonizing declaration of love -- Lenny's defining moment. His vibrant tenor is never mundane, even on the subpar material, and this CD showcases his ability to sing standards, show tunes, contemporary pop, and doo wop numbers like "Congratulations Baby."
