From Billboard - November 30, 1957: A fine new album  by Chris Connor that should gas her many, many fans. The thrush is featured here on an outstanding group of pop tunes, including such wonderful items as "Witchcraft," "I'll Never Be Free," "Baltimore Oriole," and "Like A Woman." And she sings then with the style and taste that mark all of her work. The arrangements by Dick Wess swing too. A strong new slicing by the thrush with a most exciting cover.
