From the back cover: For those who haven't heard the voice of Carole Carr, words are going to have a tough time describing it. Even though her vocalizing has been the subject of some of the most enthusiastic accolades ever accoladed, none of them seems to do justice. Jimmy Van Heusen, a top song writer in anybody's book, put it simply. He said, "This is one of the best girl singers I've ever heard ever." Other comments were not quite so reserved.

This couldn't have happened if Carole had not had the sound background she's acquired. It all started at her first public appearance at the age of three. Much against the wishes of her grandfather (a "Golden Voiced Tenor" in an English variety act called the Alabama Minstrels), Carole stood atop a piano and sang "I Don't Know What I Love You Like I Do." Unfortunately she hadn't learned the end of the song and was forced to repeat the chorus three times. She was carried off the stage still singing. She has never stopped.

Carole has gone on to become one of the top popular singers of the British Isles and the Continent. She has toured the war fronts from London to Korea, has had her voice beamed to troops around the world; has sung with such will-known English bands as Jack Payne and Geraldo, and is consistency heard on radio and seen on television in innumerable series.
