My late mom used to play this all the time growing up. Lately, I've bought artists like Johnny Mathis that my mom loved that I never thought I would purchase. I like this album of Linda Ronstadt doing standards. My favorites are What'll I do and I don't stand a ghost of a chance. Some people are snooty to this album online saying that she's not a jazz artist like Ella Fitzgerald and Peggy Lee. But then who is? For a rock artist who decided to do a standards album, Ronstadt does this very well. It brings back good memories of my old home. There are good arrangements by Nelson Riddle too.

The title song is just meant to shock. Actually, it is a vocal album with some tunes from then recent Broadway shows. "Sex and the single girl" and "Anniversary song" were sung by Fran in the Natalie Wood movie "Sex and the single girl." Fran has an interesting voice and the arrangements have a 60's vibe. My favorite song is "What are we waiting for."
