An early album that compiles material that Jeri Southern
recorded in her first few years for Decca Records – tunes done in the dreamy, romantic style that was one of Southern
's key calling cards in the 50s! The style is never too sleepy, nor too commercial – and instead, Jeri
's got a great way of putting over a moody late nite tune without resorting to common cliches. Backings are by Sy Oliver, Camarata, Sonny Burke, and others – but the album's got a nicely unified feel, thanks to Jeri
's strong vocals in the lead. Torchy stuff, but in an uncommon way – and with titles that include "When I Fall In Love", "Give Me Time", "Something I Dreamed Last Night", "Remind Me", "That Ole Devil Called Love", and "What Good Am I Without You".
