A review in The Ottawa Citizen noted: "Mantovani, a violinist, has surrounded himself with a very fine group of instrumentalists and the result is full-toned pleasure. There are no fancy arrangements in Mantovani's work. He turns out waltz tempos that are a pleasure for dancing or just plain listening."[2]

Another review, in The Vancouver Sun, called it a "pleasant item" with "exceptionally fine recording."[3]

The song, "Charmaine", was also released as a single and spent 19 weeks on the singles chart starting in November 1951; it peaked at No. 10.[4]
