From Billboard - March 17, 1962: This pairing seems almost natural for heavy action, radio and storewide alike. Cole warbles in his usual polished, professional manner against Shearing's fine, often gospel-styled piano here, all of it augmented neatly by a choir of strings. "September Song," "A Beautiful Friendship" (once recorded by Ella Fitzgerald) and "I Got It Bad" are among the tracks. Buyers, incidentally, get an extra LP bonus of six tracks of Cole and another six by Shearing, from earlier albums by each, which should assure success.

September Song
Pick Yourself Up
I Got It Bad And That Ain't Good
Let There Be Love
Lost April
A Beautiful Friendship
In Other Words
I'm Lost
There's A Lull In My Life
Don't Go
