180 gram vinyl LP in Gatefold packaging
"You’re Mine You" marked Sarah Vaughan’s second recorded collaboration with Quincy Jones, following a Mercury album titled "Vaughan and Violins", which was taped in Paris, France, on July 7-12, 1958, and featured the singer backed by a string section. This isn’t the case with the album presented here, on which there are just a few touches of strings and a strong big band occupies the forefront.
According to All Music Guide critic Scott Yanow, “This LP finds Sarah Vaughan backed by big-band and string arrangements from Quincy Jones that could easily have been used for a Frank Sinatra date. Vaughan’s voice is typically wondrous and sometimes a bit excessive on the ballads but in top form on the more swinging numbers. In the repertoire are such tunes as ‘The Best Is Yet to Come’, ‘The Second Time Around’ and ‘Baubles, Bangles and Beads’. The set should please those who love the sound of Sassy’s remarkable voice.”
