AllMusic Review by

If you see a copy of this album, swoop it up because one day it'll be a collector item. The lead singer for the Intruders on this is not Sam "Little Sonny" Brown, but Bobby Starr, an unheralded Philadelphia lounge singer. This is the only Intruders recording that didn't feature Little Sonny's rough, dragging, seemingly flat, yet charming tenor. Starr mimics Brown to perfection; his voice is much smoother, but the tone and phrasings are identical. Titled after the Intruders' remake of the Dreamlovers' "When We Get Married," this is a commendable 11-song set. "This Is My Love Song" charted R&B, but you won't find it on the Intruders double CD Cowboys to Girls. A pleasing rendition of "Brand New Me," originally waxed by Dusty Springfield, adds a pleasant touch. "I Didn't Know" has Starr and the guys expending a little energy. Little Sonny returned on subsequent Intruders LPs and Bobby Starr returned from whence he came, never to surface again.
