All Music Guide - Dave Nathan
This latest release is another in a series of excellent vocal albums by Gloria Loring, who has been a mainstay of the popular song scene for more than 20 years. The play bill is made up of tunes identified by fans as favorites in an e-mail poll. As one would expect, the result is a mix of standards, show tunes, and adult pop by the cream of songsmiths, from collaborations by Richard Rodgers/Lorenz Hart to those of John Lennon/Paul McCartney. Despite the many years in the performing trenches, Loring's voice has lost not one iota of its clear-as-a-bell diction, perfect pitch, and her sensitivity to the lyrics. But if there is one quality that sets Loring's voice apart, it is ...

All Music Guide - Dave Nathan
This latest release is another in a series of excellent vocal albums by Gloria Loring, who has been a mainstay of the popular song scene for more than 20 years. The play bill is made up of tunes identified by fans as favorites in an e-mail poll. As one would expect, the result is a mix of standards, show tunes, and adult pop by the cream of songsmiths, from collaborations by Richard Rodgers/Lorenz Hart to those of John Lennon/Paul McCartney. Despite the many years in the performing trenches, Loring's voice has lost not one iota of its clear-as-a-bell diction, perfect pitch, and her sensitivity to the lyrics. But if there is one quality that sets Loring's voice apart, it is the sincerity she attaches to each song. It simply oozes on such offerings as "It Never Entered My Mind," where she and pianist Larry Steelman turn this favorite standard into a love poem. Even though "Quiet Please, There's a Lady Stage" has been in Loring's play book virtually her entire career, its delivery is anything but routine, as the exquisite poignancy coupled with a "the show must go on" determination is still there. The album's premier track is the medley of tunes that run a gamut of feelings. "It's All in the Game" is filled with chin-up determination, while sweet regret is the theme of "Once Upon a Time," all backed by tasteful instrumentation helping to create the right mood. If this request album is any measure, Loring's fans enjoy songs which move and inspire. There's absolutely no fluff here. The outcome firmly confirms Loring's ability to successfully pull together material from different genres and generations into a thoroughly enjoyable concert of song. Strongly recommended.
