Plenty of magic here – a record with a different sound than some of Sarah Vaughan's earlier work – but one that's still pretty great! The backings here bring in plenty of strings, and a bit of voices – going for a full feel that's a bit like some of the country soul albums of the period – although Sarah herself is far from country, and nicely poised throughout. A number of the tunes are standards, but they have a different sort of feel in this setting – and Vaughan's vocals float nicely over the top, tying the whole thing together on tunes that include "That Old Black Magic", "Carefree", "Separate Ways", "Mary Contrary", "I've Got The World On A String", "Love Is A Random Thing", and "Sweet Affection". (Black label pressing, with deep groove. Cover has some edge wear, a sticker on the front, and some surface wear on the back.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
