Reception[edit]

Professional ratings
Review scores
Source Rating
Allmusic 3/5 stars[3]

Allmusic awarded the album 3 stars stating "Although not as well produced or engineered as his '70s and '80s Muse recordings, this late '60s date is vintage Houston Person. He's doing the same mix of blues, ballads, and soul jazz cuts as always, although with a little less confidence, edge, and control than he displays on later albums".[3]
