The Rolling Stone Jazz Record Guide 3/5 stars[3]

Allmusic awarded the album 3 stars stating "Earland was getting into mixing up his customary organ with electric piano and synthesizer by the time of this 1974 concert, recorded at the Montreux Jazz Festival... this is a respectable and energetic set containing some real flights of inspiration, as when he seems to be barely keeping some demons in check during the more frenzied solos".[2]
