A quick read-through of the song titles and writers' credits might give one the impression of a country album in the offing, but in reality this is a pleasant honky tonk-pop hybrid. With its doo wop beats and relentlessly burbling baritone sax, the album brings to mind a jukebox, a chocolate milkshake, and an early '60s-style cute blonde, which in this case would be Sue Thompson, a talented musician and singer. Her version of "Oh, Lonesome Is Me" is among the best of quite a bunch of recordings of this song, which she accomplishes due to the strength of her voice and plenty of sparkle. Her choice of songwriters is tasteful, as there are several numbers here from John D. Loudermilk as well as songs by Don Everly and the brothers Bryant and Kershaw. ~ Eugene Chadbourne
