AllMusic Review by Scott Yanow

For her final studio album (the last cuts were recorded just three months before her death), the classic swing singer Maxine Sullivan interpreted 16 songs by Jule Styne dating from 1926's "Sunday" to 1983's "Killing Time." Sullivan's voice was still strong at the end of her career, and her interpretations of such numbers as "Just in Time," "It's Been a Long, Long Time," "I Don't Want to Walk Without You" and "I've Heard That Song Before" uplift the lyrics and make the tunes sound fresh and new. A fine close to a productive career.
