Extracts from liner notes by Alan Eichler, Los Angeles.
"Vivian was in the midst of rehearsing a new cabaret act for New York and she came up with the idea of recording a live album and donating the proceeds to APLA. She gave her only two performances on July 8 and 9, 1983 at "Tom Rolla's Gardenia", historically the first time a star had publicly shown support for the organization. The shows were taped by David Cunard for AEI Records and the LP was released with a printed sticker on the cover proclaiming that all proceeds went to AIDS Project/Los Angeles."

"Happily, this recording captures Vivian Blaine at the peak of her artistry with a selection of songs that trace her great career with sophistication and wit, permanently preserved for generations to come [came]. She was indeed a magnificent "doll"."
