From Broadway With Love contains a dozen great classics from the Broadway show stage. This album features orchestrations which fall into three distinctive styles and as usual Nancy Wilson gives all of these songs her very own treatment. From the no holds barred big band version of 'Hello Dolly' to the swinging treatment of 'I've Got Your Number'. Then there's the rich string orchestra that accompanies her on 'I'll Only Miss Him When I Think Of Him' followed by a much smaller band on 'Makin' Whoopee' and 'This Dream'. Tender Loving Care is an album of love songs but not all sung or orchestrated in the form of slushy ballads. Some are pure romance and love but others really swing like 'Gee Baby, Ain't I Good To You'. Billy May arranges and conducts on this album. Put together these two albums and you have Nancy Wilson at her very best!
As Donny Osmond moved more and more into territory occupied by MOR singers Michael Ball and Michael Bublé, he found himself, an adult contemporary singer, competing even with the likes of Westlife. He didn't disown his past as a child star, opening the album with a re-recording of his most famous hit, "Puppy Love," and From Donny…With Love also included tracks from his childhood in the early '70s with songs like "When I Fall in Love" and "The Twelfth of Never." Both of these are so laid-back, unlike his earlier versions: the former is even slower than the Nat King Cole original. There are quite faithful, if unemotional versions of "How Long," "How Deep Is Your Love," "Let's Stay Together," "Right Here Waiting," "This Guys in Love with You," and "If," and Osmond returned to his love of musical theater with the songs "This Is the Moment" from Jeckyl & Hyde, "Seasons of Love" from Rent, and "Luck Be a Lady" from Guys & Dolls. The album ended with the only new track, "Never Gonna Say Goodbye," a song recorded live at Edinburgh Castle.
