A rare vocal outing from Goldie Hawn – recorded early in her career, and kind of a seminal shift away from the goofier side of her Laugh-In years! The style is surprisingly heartfelt, and quite intimate – a bit like that of Claudine Longet
's later records at times, which is well suited to Goldie's voice, and no surprise considering that Longet
's maestro Nick DeCaro had a hand in the set. Other tracks, though, bring in a bit more of a country influence – which is somewhat odd, but a really nice surprise in this setting – and shows a bit more depth than we'd expect from Hawn. Goldie's got some help on the record from Dolly Parton, Porter Wagoner, and Buck Owens & The Buckaroos – and titles include the wonderful "The House Song", plus "Carey", "Cloudy Summer", "Ring Bell", "Pasadena", "My Blue Tears", and "Uncle Pen". CD features the bonus track "Pitta Patta".
