This is Holly's finest example of her blend of jazz, pop, and... that special something. This 2000 album from the jazz/pop chanteuse features a collection of 12 covers of choice jazz and pop songs. Included are her renditions of Paul Simon's "One Trick Pony," Randy Newman's "Ghosts," Sammy Chan and James Van Heusen's "Come Fly With Me," Ralph Bass and Lowman Pauling's "Dedicated To The One I Love" and Stephen Sondheim's "Loving You." The first single from the album, "Make It Go Away," is a re-working of a track from her 1997 album Dark Dear Heart.

This is a quick review of the bonus 45 LP, without having completed listening to the enitre LP.

Wow, are you kidding me? When did Holly and her musicians sneak into my living room!? This is the first 45 LP on heavy vinyl that I've listened to and it took me by surprise. First, I had to reduce the volume because the sound levels blew me away. I generally listen with the knob at 8:30 and I've never had to do this before on any LP; if anything, I turn it up a notch. Perhaps because the vocals and instruments had soo much presence, it gave the illusion that the music was louder than normal. But the "you are there" factor was mind blowing. Forget front row; I was among the band members. Now I understand why the big deal about 45 pressings. The purchase was worth the bonus 45 LP alone.
