AllMusic Review by

This is a pleasant enough album, and London makes a valiant effort -- supported by arranger Ernie Freeman and producer Snuff Garrett -- to re-create the mood of "Cry Me a River" on the title track, and that's a mistake, as it simply seems a pale imitation. The rest is more interesting, but more because of the arrangements than due to London's singing. The original album is one of those classic stereo showcases, with Garrett and Freeman giving the lead instrument in the accompaniment, whether strings or organ or guitar, a very close and directional presence.
