This was the followup album to the extremely successful Don't Go to Strangers LP whose title track took Etta to the pop record charts. Those who recognized her talent in her 1947 version of "I Sold My Heart to the Junkman" were glad to have her back and, from that, she developed a new following. Here she sings a mixture of established standards such as "I Only Have Eyes for You" and "Fools Rush In," and some rarer material including "Love Is the Thing."
A bonus is the presence of tenor saxophonist Oliver Nelson and vibist Lem Winchester on Etta's poignant reading of "Easy Living."

with Oliver Nelson, Lem Winchester, Wally Richardson, Jimmy Neeley, Michael Mulia, Rudy Lawless, Richard Wyands, George Duvivier, Roy Haynes
