Reception[edit]

Bruce Eder from AllMusic said: "It was on this album that all of The Seekers' varied attributes... kicked in at their peak at the same time. The album opens with the title track, a Woodley original that's one of the best folk-style recordings to come out of the British Invasion and also one of the Seekers' greatest performances."[3]
