... When Gene Met Fred • The Minstrel Boy • Love is Here to Stay • Chicago

"... Gordon Lewin's Blow by Blow yet again displays his sure touch as an arranger and composer. This has musicianship, spirit and colour written all over it... When Gene Met Fred is an excellent dance number. The Minstrel Boy and Chicago are similarly infectious arrangements, while Love is Here to Stay employs rich ballad harmonies making full use of the four-part writing opportunity.
