Only at the end of the album are we subjected to '60s pop revivals, which means that we get a sense of what McHugh's hits sounded like not long after they were written. The bad news is that so much of the album is given over to McHugh songs that have been forgotten. That's not the compilers' fault, of course; it happens that, while McHugh wrote many successful songs in the '30s and '40s, many of them have not proven memorable. On the other hand, there are many McHugh songs that should have been included.

Jazz and The Great American Songbook. Sometimes a standard began life as a flop, as with ‘Here’s That Rainy Day’. Jimmy Van Heusen and Johnny Vurke wrote the song for the 1953 musical Carnival In Flanders, but the show closed after just six performances. It was not until Sinatra’s version, six years later, that the song was recognised as a classic, one that would later be recorded by hundreds of artists, from country singer Kenny Rogers to jazz instrumentalists Coleman Hawkins and Chet Baker. One of the special things about Ronstadt’s album of Songbook tunes was that she worked with arranger Nelson Riddle, the man who had done so much for Frank Sinatra’s music with his elegant string arrangements.
