From the back cover: Just as no Broadway production is ever brought before the footlights without dreams, dedication and years of plain hard work, the same is true of performers such as the Barry Sisters. Claire and Merna have been entertaining professionally since their pre-teen years. They have steadily been gaining the knowledge, experience, and show business knowhow that have brought them to their present position as two of the most professional performers in the entertainment world. While maturing chronologically and vocally, and building their repertoire in nine languages, the Barry Sisters have become familiar names in the finest supper clubs and on the most poplar television shows, internationally and in the United States; London's Talk of the Town, New York's elegant Persian Room of the Plaza Hotel – where they received standing ovations on opening and closing night – The Copacabana and Latin Quarter; and TV's Ed Sullivan Show," Jack Paar, and "Tonight" shows are just a few of the spots that claim the Barry Sisters as regular tenants.

From Billboard - March 20, 1965: The Barry Sisters have a following and so does the Broadway smash, "Fiddler On The Roof." It follows, therefore, that the sister team and the Jerry Bock-Sheldon Harnick score should bring a lot of enjoyment to many fans.
