This may well be Jack's best album. It was released in 1966 when he was at his peak and although it wasn't one of his biggest sellers, the singing is superb. The selection of songs is perfect for Jack and some of his versions are definitive in the minds of many. For example, he does "I Don't Care Much" (from Cabaret) in a way that conveys the gist of the song better than even some of the original cast versions. Other highlights include "A Day in the Life of a Fool", "Watch What Happens", and "Street of Dreams".
