AllMusic Review by

The haunting voice of Julie London is showcased on this obscure LP with backing by an orchestra arranged by Ernie Freeman. The brief liner notes do not say anything about the personnel or the exact date, merely predicting that the dozen mostly recent compositions will someday become standards. While little has been heard of "The End of the World," "Our Day Will Come," and "My Coloring Book" since this period, most of the others did in fact catch on. London is typically straightforward and coolly sensuous on such numbers as "Call Me Irresponsible," "I Left My Heart In San Francisco," "Days of Wine and Roses," and "I Remember You" (the only veteran song on the album).
