From Billboard - June 6, 1960: The style which shot Dakota Staton to virtually overnight prominence is very much present in her latest efforts. Many of the selections are of the slower paced variety which can be very revealing of any weaknesses in a singer's technique. Miss Staton sounds as convincing in these as in her up-tempo efforts. Her wide following will be happy about her delivery of "Someone To Watch Over Me," " My One And Only Love," "I'll Know," and "Time Was," among others. A strong chart contender.

Someone To Watch Over Me
I Need Your Love So Bad
Why Don't You Think Things Over
Romance In The Dark
My One And Only Love
Love Me
I'll Know
Where Flamingos Fly
Time Was
My Babe
Come Home
Seems Like You Just Don't Care
