Chris Connor was in her musical prime during the 1950s, but this long-out-of-print LP was a misfire. Essentially a middle-of-the-road pop date, Connor is backed by a string orchestra with voices arranged by Ray Ellis. The jazz content is quite low, even on “My Ideal” and “Speak Low”; only “They All Laughed” swings much. Most of the other numbers were current pop tunes that have been mostly forgotten in the decades since. All of the dozen songs are under three minutes long, and Connor never really gets away from the generally weak melodies. A rather forgettable effort, weighed down by Ellis’ dull arrangements and a distracting vocal group. In 2001, I Miss You So was reissued on CD as part of the two-fer I Miss You So/Witchcraft.
