From the back cover: There is music, too, for the Bachelor at Contemplation. When the stag has drunk his fill, and the lone wolf run his solitary course, and the outrider comes home to rest, there is a need for the subtle companionship of music that soothes without intrusion. This is the time – and the tune – for planning great projects, for erecting the architecture of success, and for electing the next delectable feminine morsel to be approached.

From Billboard - September 8, 1956: Here's a subtle evocation of mood – music for the bachelor; music to sooth him when he's singed in the heat of the chase; music for his daydreams – such as "I'll See You In My Dreams," "Dinner For One Please, James." "Time On My Hands," etc. Great standards all – with lush, tasteful arrangements and an obvious understanding of the subject – both melodic and social. Cover features an absorbing photo of Jayne Mansfield.
