From the back cover: Originally a protege of the great Johnny Mercer, Margaret Whiting emerged as of the brightest stars in a golden age of singer, with a fantastic string of hit singles and albums that lasted for years. During the sensational run of million sellers the following songs were included "It Might As Well Be Spring," "A Tree In The Meadow," "Far Away Places," "Moonlight In Vermont," "Guilty,' "Baby It's Cold Outside," "Come Rain Of Come Shine," "Wonderful Guy," "Let's Go To Church On Sunday." Her repertoire ranged all the way from from pop songs to jazz and included sacred and country songs as well. Indeed, with Jimmy Wakely, she formed one of the most successful recording teams in country music history. Their recording of "Slippin' Around" is a classic and has sold millions.

The voice of Margaret Whiting has weathered many changes and styles of popular music. In this new album, Margaret has been joined by two major talents: first the gifted composer-arranger Arnold Goland has supplied her with magic background the represent the best of today's musical stylings. Secondly, the Album was produced by Jack Gold who has a way with writing and selecting songs and who always gets the best performance possible out of those people involved in his projects. – Ed Sullivan, Noted TV Personality and Syndicated Columnist

From Billboard - December 31, 1966: The powerful recording comeback made single "Wheel Of Hurt" will continue right through to the LP chart with this diversified package. She brings fresh luster to "You Don't Have To Say You Love Me" and "Time After Time." Country flavored "Where Do I Stand" and production ballad "It Hurts To Say Goodbye" are gems.
