This nearly forgotten, adventurous record features "Ella" taking plenty of risks with modern music. She breaks outside the boundaries of established jazz, covering atypical selections such as “Yellow Man”, by Randy Newman and "Savoy Truffle" by The Beatles. This is the late 60's Ella, natural, direct and in rare, uninhibited form.

Ella Fitzgerald's first flirtation with the acid rock era was a 1968 live date with Tommy Flanagan, titled Sunshine of Your Love, but it featured only a pair of songs from rock composers, Cream's title song and the Beatles' "Hey Jude." (Granted, they were the first two songs on the LP.) One year later, Warner booked studio time at Olympic Studios in London for her to work with producer Richard Perry, a former associate of the Leiber & Stoller crew at the Red Bird label and fresh off a remake of Fats Domino's image (for Fats Is Back). The results here are roughly similar to what he did with Fats; Perry chose songs that were most easily rendered by his artist and most capable of crossing over. Ella submerges herself nearly entirely in the work of rock or R&B stalwarts – Smokey Robinson, the Beatles, Randy Newman, Harry Nilsson – and Perry obliges with arrangements anchored by horns, acoustic or electric pianos, and only occasionally, strings. Despite the comfortable backings, it's never able to escape the feel of a crossover; on her version of Smokey Robinson & the Miracles' "Ooo Baby Baby," Ella makes some wonderful choices during the verses (it's easy to see traditional pop's influence on Smokey himself), but, on the choruses, she's chained to her backing chorus with poor results.
