Reviewing the album for AllMusic, Scott Yanow wrote that "...even if the results are not all that unique, her voice is often in near-miraculous form. ...Sassy sounds in prime form, on such songs as "I Didn't Know What Time It Was," "Autumn Leaves," "The Island" and "You Are Too Beautiful." It is hard to believe, listening to her still-powerful voice on this CD reissue, that she had already been a recording artist for 40 years".[1]
