This was a great CD to allow the full appreciation for Lydia Gray
This was a great CD, that allowed us to listen to Lydia Gray's full range of skills. That light, soft music harks back to earlier days, but the best part is to listen to someone who sings so you can hear every word!

This album is a breeze
It's not often that you get a disc where you like every track, but this is one of them. Great for stress relief after a hard day. Lydia's diction is marvellous and as the album title indicates, this cd is a gentle breeze
