Unlike some of Brenda's more popular earlier pop/rock orientated discs these tracks show the sheer versitility of her voice and artistry. It is criminal that the record companies and Brenda can't come to an amicable agreement about payment, and release some more of these fantastic and grossly under-rated tracks - like so many of the melody based recordings from the mid/late-1960's it's only now that they are being fully appreciated.

5.0 out of 5 stars Last of the series, but not the last of Brenda, 29 April 2014

The ninth and tenth albums of Brenda's career are dominated by ballads. They include the hits Break it to me gently, Losing you, I wonder, As usual and (in America) The grass is greener. The other tracks are mostly covers, including the fifties classic Tammy (originally recorded by Debbie Reynolds), which is incorrectly listed by the record label, even in the CD booklet, as Tommy.

Apart from that minor error, this is a great collection of mostly easy listening music that shows no sign of Brenda's earlier rocking music. Even the ballads are done a little differently, most noticeably on I love you because, where there seems to be plenty of backing singers. I don't mind this as I listen to plenty of such music by other singers, but I wasn't expecting it from Brenda.

The record label that released this series of original albums as twofers decided to stop after the first ten albums, which is a shame but commercially understandable. Brenda's hits thinned out dramatically for the remainder of the sixties before she eventually switched to country music. Her late sixties pop music includes Is it true, Too many rivers, Comin' on strong and Johnny one time, but her days a big-time pop star were over.

Enjoy this release and its companions Grandma What Great Songs You Sang/Miss Dynamite, This Is...Brenda/Emotions, All the Way/Sincerely and Brenda That's All/All Alone Am I, but if he want her later original albums, you may be in for a long wait.
