Writing for Allmusic, music critic Ken Dryden wrote "The guitarist and his brothers are in great form throughout the session in spite of the less-than-ideal piano provided. The highlight of the evening in the studio is a foot-tapping version of Carl Perkins' "Groove Yard," followed closely by a wild ride through Harold Land's "Delirium."... Like most of Wes Montgomery's Riverside recordings, this release is an essential part of his discography and is highly recommended."[1]
