Writing for AllMusic, Scott Yanow said "no Miles Davis collection is complete without this important set."[1] Down Beat magazine's Jon Andrews said his "once-controversial" pop covers benefited from "expansions and improvisations".[2] Village Voice critic Robert Christgau was less enthusiastic, deeming it a "dud".[4]
