Reception[edit]

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

The Allmusic site awarded the album 4 stars stating "The Rocking Tenor Sax of Eddie Chamblee finds him blowing with a leering, bump-and-grind swagger more ideally suited to a roadhouse strip joint than an uptown jazz club... it's not without good reason that the cover spells out "Rocking" entirely in capital letters".[2]
