AllMusic Review by

Originally released on Columbia, these two Ray Conniff albums, We've Only Just Begun and Love Story, zero in on easy listening versions (or elevator music) of early-'70s pop hits. This collection includes formulaic treatments of popular compositions by Lennon and McCartney, Bacharach/David, Ray Stevens, Neil Diamond, and Gordon Lightfoot. Not an essential purchase by a long shot, but this disc will provide kitschy moments for your next cocktail party. In 2002, Collectables began reissuing Conniff's Columbia titles as two-fers with original cover art and song sequences.
