Reviews :

"Epitaph is the over-achiever. Ella recorded a series of her 'greatest hits' for the soundtrack of this entirely forgettable movie, a few of which were used. Ella played a singing piano player, so she recorded the songs with only piano backing by Paul Smith. ... Recorded in 1960 at the United Western Recorders in Hollywood, which produced great sounding hits for everyone from Nat King Cole to the Beach Boys, this has always been recognized as one of Ella's best sounding records, and was released long ago by Classic Records. Great music recorded during the golden age of recording at one of the great studios, mastered to perfection." Dennis D. Davis, Hi-Fi+, Issue 104

"This is a most unusual Ella Fitzgerald recording. Recorded around the time when she performed some of these songs for the film Let No Man Write My Epitaph, the masterful singer is heard in duets with pianist Paul Smith interpreting 13 songs (even "I Cried for You," "I Can't Give You Anything But Love," and "Who's Sorry Now?") at slow expressive tempos. Listeners who feel that Ella Fitzgerald was mostly a scat singer who had trouble giving the proper emotional intensity to lyrics will be surprised by this sensitive and often-haunting set." AllMusic Review by Scott Yanow
