Review scores

In his AllMusic retrospective review of the release, Bruce Eder wrote, "Aside from the hit 'Can't You See That She's Mine,' and everything is filler, whether the covers of 'Rumble,' 'Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah,' and 'On Broadway,' or trite, diddling originals, including a flight into a near-Muzak instrumental ("Theme Without a Name"). Among the originals, 'I Need You, I Love You' and 'Forever and a Day' aren't too bad, but you're best off leaving this in the bin of overpriced collector items in which you'll probably find the record."
