SinglesEdit

The album yielded the title track single "Last Time I Saw Him," a multi-format hit that reached #1 (for three weeks) on the Billboard Hot Adult Contemporary, #14 on the Hot 100 and #15 on the Hot Soul singles.

It peaked at #9 Pop on the Top 100 lists for both Cashbox and Record World as well as #10 in Radio & Records. It also reached #35 in the United Kingdom.

The song was a bit of a musical departure for Diana with a sound combining country with Dixieland jazz. Shortly after its release, it was remade by country music star Dottie West who scored success with the single on the C&W charts, reaching #8.

"Sleepin'" was the second U.S. single, but despite a vocal performance that had shades of Billie Holiday, only reached #70 Pop and #50 R&B.

In the U.K., the chosen 2nd single was the ballad "Love Me" (#38) whose lyrics were replete with double entendres.

Chart PerformanceEdit

The album had a disappointing chart run, reaching #52 on the Billboard 200 and would be the last studio album Diana issued in the next three years until 1976.
