The album peaked at 97 on the Billboard 200. It was reissued on CD by Capitol Records in 2006 and Hip-O Records in 2009. Martin was recording infrequently at this stage of his career, recording for only two days every Spring to produce a new album and, recording an occasional singles session.
The initial Billboard review from 22 August 1970 commented that "Martin has everything going for him". William Ruhlmann on Allmusic.com gave the album two and a half stars out of five. Ruhlmann criticised Martin's lack of emotional commitment to the lyrics of the title song, and of Bowen and Martin's collaboration adds that "Martin obliged, and Bowen provided his usual Nashville sound-style production. But this was nothing the two hadn't done many times before, and record buyers were losing interest"
