AllMusic Review by

This now-rare ten-inch LP is a quintessential artifact of the 1950s; easy listening in gleaming hi-fi for the white suburbs. Here, Vaughan purveys pop standards and novelties in a mostly light-hearted pop manner, backed by Hugo Peretti and his Studio Orchestra's lavish orchestral backings occasionally equipped with a beat and a "modern" touch like an electric guitar. Nevertheless, Miss Sassy does her job supremely well, even making stoic work of the cuter-than-words treatment of "Honey," and occasionally she gets a chance to show off her uniquely wide-screen range, turning in an especially lovely "Tenderly" with some virtuosic glides.
