"The Lady in Red pairs Abbe Lane with arranger Sid Ramin, whose orchestrations are as voluptuous as Lane herself. The album oozes sex appeal from every pore, delivered with a confidence and self-awareness that ultimately transcend cheesecake altogether. Lane is no great singer in any conventional sense, but her sheer braggadocio and jazz-inspired phrasing give her a distinct edge over rival pinups like Julie London -even better, she tackles chauvinist fluff like "Femininity" with good humor and grace. No less important, Ramin's bold, lively arrangements boast a cinematic flair that calls to mind any number of romantic comedy scores, couching Lane's curves like a velvet chaise lounge."
