Original July 20, 1968, Cash Box Magazine review of Watch Out: "Outstanding production intermingles tempting smidges of a number of leading stylings from the blues-beat to underground leaders to come up with a powerhouse single that borrows from many, but imitates none. Team has a rock feel that should captivate top forty listeners, and enough strength to score breakout sales." Cash Box, which competed with Billboard Magazine, was aimed at radio station program directors, deejays, and record retailers.
