Original Album Liner Notes:
Susan Raye is hard to talk about… just like it’s hard to talk about the smell of fall or the sound of love or any other private, intangible, unutterable feelings.
Still there are a few things we’d like to say: that Susan is a beautiful lady: that she is warm, kind, talented, honest, feeling: that there are ten Susan Raye performances here: that each one is a fitting successor to “L.A. International Airport”: that they were written by the likes of Buck Owens, Merle Haggard, and Freddie Hart: and that for the true Susan Raye fan (and there are lots of you) there is nothing quite like hearing Susan sing a song for the first time.
Just listen to the unrestrained joyousness of “Pitty, Pitty, Patter,” Susan’s latest hit. And the meltingly lovely sensuality of “Within My Loving Arms.” And the heartaching loss and loneliness of “(I’m Goin’) Home.” No wonder she’s become such a phenomenal success on TV and with Buck Owens’ All-American Show.
More than likely, Susan Raye is hard to talk about because she’s so much nicer just to listen to.
