Diane Renay's clearly got a thing for sailors going on here – but maybe that's no surprise, given that she's handled on the album by the great Bob Crewe
– whose perfect presentation of the music is right up there with his best pop of the 60s! Charlie Calello handled almost all of the arrangements, and the pairing of his talents with Crewe
is so great, it wouldn't even matter who was singing – as there's gentle grooves on most numbers, weird instrumental effects, and a sublime spacing of the tunes – that same magic that the pair brought to their Four Seasons recordings. Yet it also turns out that Diane's a pretty great singer – maybe more soul than you might expect, especially when female backup singers come in and push her along! Titles include "Soft Spoken Guy", "A Present From Eddie", "Bell Bottom Trousers", "Navy Blue", "Man Of Mystery", "Unbelievable Guy", "He Promised Me Forevermore", and "Hello Heartaches". CD features the full album in mono and stereo – plus bonus tracks "Growin Up Too Fast", "Waitin For Joey", and "It's In Your Hands".
