AllMusic Review by

Tender Loving Care teams Nancy Wilson with arranger Billy May for a collection of romantic ballads and torch songs that capture the singer at her most sensuous. May's handling of songs like "Like Someone in Love" and "Try a Little Tenderness" boast an uncommon sensitivity, deftly avoiding syrup and sentimentality in a far-ranging series of contexts that extend from lushly orchestral to starkly jazzy. And Wilson is at her best here, taking full command of the familiar songs and re-animating them with vocals that are bold, sophisticated, and daringly adult.
