Reception[edit]

Professional ratings

SourceRating
Allmusic3/5 stars[2]

The Allmusic site awarded the album 3 stars stating: "Despite its title, most of the music on this album is not actually reggae but a mixture of jazz, R&B and pop. Flutist Herbie Mann, guitarists Mick Taylor and Albert Lee and keyboardist Pat Rebillot combine with the eight-piece Tommy McCook band to create some spirited and danceable (if a bit dated) music... The results are fun if not all that substantial".[2]
