Writing for Allmusic, critic Steven Cook wrote of the album "While often seen as no more than hokey, easy listening ephemera, Atkins' many sides from the '60s deserve a reassessment. The stellar jazz dates Atkins later did at Columbia may better showcase his jazz leanings, but these RCA discs still have a wealth of quality picking and a good share of top-drawer material."[1]


  • In 1995, Travelin' and Caribbean Guitar were reissued on CD by One Way Records.[2]
