Allmusic     [2]

Allmusic awarded the album 3 stars stating "Considering that this album was an obvious follow-up to The In Crowd it is surprising that the music is not more commercial; that would happen in the near future. As it was, pianist Ramsey Lewis (assisted as usual by bassist Eldee Young and drummer Red Holt) had another big hit in "Hang on Sloopy," and the set (as with the previous one) was recorded at a club before an enthusiastic crowd.[2]
