From Billboard - March 17, 1962: A very lush and beautiful set of ballads is played by the big Stan Kenton band here. The tunes are almost all drawn from the standard repertoire and feature the brass and reed choirs that do much to bring the mood and nostalgic reflections of the melodic material vividly to life. Album makes a fine programming item, and should score with adult listeners and dancers. Among the better tracks are "But Beautiful," "You Stepped Out Of A Dream," "Memoirs Of A Lady" and "Like Someone In Love."

But Beautiful
Darn That Dream
It Might As Well Be Spring
Moonlight Becomes You
How Do I Look In Blue
You Stepped Out Of A Dream
How Long Had This Been Going On?
Memoirs Of A Lady
Time After Time
Easy To Love
My One And Only Love
Like Someone In Love
