This album was originally released in 1968, to support the chart success of lead single, Girls You Can’t Do What The Guys Do. That track is the opening track here, and what a majestic recording it is. It sets a very high standard for any album to maintain, but Betty sees that challenge and enjoys every moment of it.

These recordings have all the youthful exuberance that you would expect from a 14-year-old as Betty was at the time, but also a depth that you would only normally associate with a much older singer. Betty even contributes to the writing, Circle Of Heartbreak being written single-handed. To highlight individual tracks is a bit unnecessary, every track stands tall on its own and as part of the whole album.
