Allmusic3/5 stars[1]

The Allmusic review by Richard S. Ginell awarded the album three stars and said that "This now-rare ten-inch LP is a quintessential artifact of the 1950s; easy listening in gleaming hi-fi for the white suburbs. Miss Sassy does her job supremely well, even making stoic work of the cuter-than-words treatment of "Honey," and occasionally she gets a chance to show off her uniquely wide-screen range, turning in an especially lovely "Tenderly" with some virtuosic glides".[1]
