On his 1971 debut, singer/pianist Ronnie Milsap presents a relaxed set of pop-tinged country tunes, essentially revealing the template for his long-running career. Although the mood of the album is laid-back and remarkably consistent, Milsap's gentle interpretation of Kris Kristofferson's "Please Don't Tell Me How the Story Ends" proves to be the standout track, and would go on to become one of the North Carolina native's signature tunes.
