Allmusic 4/5 stars [1]

Released January 11th 1974, the album reached #85 on the Billboard U.S. Pop Charts, and #5 on the Billboard R&B Charts. It included the hit single "Lookin' For A Love", which charted No. 1 on the Billboard R&B Singles chart and #10 on the Billboard Hot 100. Sadly, it was the last album in which Bobby's younger brother, Harry was featured. In the March after the album's release, he was stabbed to death by his girlfriend.

Harry and his other brothers are featured singing background vocals on the album, as they had with previous Bobby releases, and they re-sang their original 1962 hit when they were The Valentinos. Although Bobby had rehearsed the song, he wasn't going to feature it, but eventually went ahead at the insistence of one of his musicians.
