Original February 3, 1968, Cash Box Magazine Best Bet review of Visions: "Made for mono and stereo sets, this rock track has extra appeal for coin-operators but is likely to succeed on the basis of its own rock attraction. Mid-speed outing with some good showings on vocal and instrumental work." Cash Box, which competed with Billboard Magazine, was aimed at radio station program directors, deejays, and record retailers.
