Original October 7, 1967, Cash Box Magazine review: "Somewhat better than average rock side presented with a good group showing is set out of the run-of-the-mill category by excellent stereo recording that should bring considerable attention among discerning teens and disco listeners. The strong beat adds sales vigor." Cash Box, which competed with Billboard Magazine, was aimed at radio station program directors, deejays, and record retailers.
