Reception[edit]

Professional ratings
Review scores
Source Rating
Allmusic 4/5 stars[2]

Allmusic awarded the album 4 stars stating "In the mid-'60s, organist Richard "Groove" Holmes had a hit with his medium-tempo rendition of "Misty." This CD reissue has the original short version (which was cut as a 45) plus other medium-tempo ballads performed in similar fashion... the organist's sound is more appealing than some of the tunes".[2]
