Released in the summer of 1996, it is commonly known among fans as 'The Lullaby Album'. It reached number 78 - and lasted three months - on the Billboard album chart. It also earned the singer a new career distinction when it hit #1 on the Top Kid Audio chart.
This album has never been out of print and in 2008 was reissued on Rhino's Flashback Records label.
Allmusic critic Stephen Thomas Erlewine rated the album 2.5 of 5 stars, writing: "All of the songs are given lush, sweet, and soft arrangements, even when that approach is ludicrous; it might be a cute idea to deliver Queen's "We Will Rock You" as a rock-a-bye chant, but in practice it is simply ridiculous… the appeal of Dedicated to the One I Love is limited..."
