Allmusic's Jason Ankeny said: "Lonnie Smith embraces fusion for Keep on Lovin' , forsaking his signature Hammond B-3 for the Fender Rhodes. ... Purists will no doubt cry foul, but in truth the record's electric sheen isn't so far removed from his Blue Note heyday, and the energy and creativity of his playing demand respect regardless of context".[4]
