From Billboard - July 27, 1960: Lindsey brings a dreamy, Glenn Miller-styled sweet-swing flavor to pleasant instrumental treatments of fairly recent hits. Interesting wax approach to familiar material for jocks.

From the back cover: A remarkably versatile young man-about-music, Mort Lindsey is perhaps best known currently for his appearances as musical director for Pat Boone, on the latter's popular television program, and of course, for his arrangements in many of Pat's albums. An accomplished pianist and organist, Mort was voted "most talented student" during his undergraduate days at Columbia University. Now a comfortable citizen of Montclair, New Jersey, Mort has proceeded to live up to that early promise in his blossoming career.
