The Ray Noble Orchestra back Coward on some classics like "Mad Dogs and Englishmen," "Lover of My Dreams," and "Mad About the Boy."

The Ray Noble Orchestra back Coward on some classics like "Mad Dogs and Englishmen," "Lover of My Dreams," and "Mad About the Boy." Gertrude Lawrence is center stage for eight tracks, the most notable being "Mad About the Boy" and one of two written by George and Ira Gershwin, "Someone to Watch Over Me."
