Once More with Feeling

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - John Bush
Billy Eckstine was looking back more than forward by 1960, and his second record for Roulette featured two remakes of familiar hits he'd enjoyed almost 20 years earlier. He also covered two average themes from forgottable movies, the first being the title song from a Yul Brynner vehicle, the second being "Secret Love" from a Doris Day film.

"I Apologize," one of the two remakes, is treated with glimmering strings that certainly suggest the '40s but work in the context of the adult-pop era as well.
