Yet another compilation released (around) 1970 to cash in on Diahann's Julia success. Basically the same release as Nobody Sees Me Cry (1967), but less some songs and added the single "World Without Love"/ "The Need Of You".
Produced by Howard Roberts.
*Arranged and Conducted by Pat Williams.

Original liner notes:

Now that Diahann has become a very big TV actress (star of the top-rated "Julia" show) are people going to forget that she is one of the greatest singers of our time? This album answers an empathic no! 
  She happens to be such stunning-looking performer you might think she's getting by on looks alone. Well, she should - but when you hear the great voice, the incredible involvement in a lyric (when she sings the words they suddenly deeply mean something) you know she could floor you with contagious emotion from behind a brick wall. That's Diahann.
  One of those born-in-New York rarities (everybody seemes to go there, not be born there) she was a model (understandably) at 15, then went to New York University for a year. Then she became a film success in, among others, "Carmen Jones" and "Porgy and Bess". From the start, Richard Rodgers was so taken with her talents that he wrote a show for her - the Broadway hit "No Strings". Then came countless nightclub appearances and TV guest shots. And then her own show - the TV "Julia".
  In this collection she shows herself simply as a singer of songs without compare. When she sings she is the words and their meaning - a fabulous singing actress. That's why she is so compelling on records. The life, the love, the emotion fairly spring out of the grooves. Enjoy!
