One of the best ever albums by Leslie Gore – full of sweet natured girl pop songcraft that's on par with her biggest hit singles – but with an underlying sadness and overall emotional depth that's underappreciated to this day! It might not be as monumental as, say Pet Sounds, but we truly don't understand how the mix of sugar sweet songs and genuinely resonant emotion here never got the critical props it deserves. That's OK – WE get it, and we know you will, too! Production by Bob Crewe and arrangements by Jack Nitzsche – and titles include "California
Nights", "Treat Me Like A Lady", "Bad", "I'm Going Out (The Same Way I Came In)", "Maybe Now", "Love Goes On Forever", "Off And Running", "Lilacs And Violets", "The Bubble Broke" and "Cry Like A Baby". This great Ace CD version goes way above the call of duty, with huge number of bonus tracks culled from her previous couple of LPs and rarities from the same mid 60s period – 15 of them, adding up to 25 tracks in all! Bonus tracks include "My Town, My Guy And Me", "Let Me Dream", "Start The Party Again", "I Just Can't Get Enough Of You", "I Can Tell", "That's What I'll Do", "Happiness Is Just Around The Corner", "Hold Me Tight" and more.
