AllMusic3.5/5 stars[3]

Ken Dryden of AllMusic said "Blind Catalonian pianist Tete Montoliu evidently introduced singer Elia Fleta on this 1966 session, but it could have been a more interesting date if the pianist had been showcased a bit more. Fleta has a pleasant voice, even if her vocals sung in English are a bit heavily accented and she has a tendency to overdo things at times. Montoliu is flawless in his role as accompanist, though with each performance running under three minutes, there is little exposure for any of them".[3]
