Reception[edit]

The Allmusic review by Stephen Thomas Erlewine awarded the album 3 stars and stated "Like many of his peers on the label, Wilson pursued a pop direction as the '60s drew to a close, which meant he covered pop hits... Although the production has dated somewhat, it remains a pleasant artifact of its time, and fans of that sound should search for it".[2]
