Music critic Thom Owen, writing for Allmusic, wrote of the album "Hartford's approach may be too kitschy for some -- after all, there are several songs driven by calliope -- yet its a thoroughly entertaining album for listeners that share his obsessions, or at least his fondness for fine, old-timey banjo."[1]
