Spin - p.106"Drawing from country, R&B, pop standards, and a Ravel-like classicism, Orbison tied it all together with his rapturous voice...both achingly human and otherworldly."
Record Collector (magazine) - p.944 stars out of 5 -- "The live readings stick rigidly to what appeared on record, but the Orbison voice is given an even freer reign, his high notes melting hearts at will."
