Dinah Sings, Previn Plays [Bonus Tracks]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - William Ruhlmann
While maintaining her status as a television star, Dinah Shore made a series of classy albums for Capitol Records between 1959 and 1962. On this, the fourth of her five LPs for the label, she again teamed with André Previn, who had arranged and conducted her earlier album, Somebody Loves Me.
