Review by Scott Yanow (AMG):
Few of Gene Ammons's recordings from his final period (1969-74) have been reissued on CD and it is doubtful that many people are waiting anxiously for this one. The great tenor is heard mostly tackling commercial material such as "What's Going On," "A House Is Not a Home" and "My Way" on this R&B-ish effort. While Ammons sounds fine (his tone was never to be denied), the dated arrangements and unimaginative playing by the rhythm section (what is Roland Hanna doing on electric piano?) largely sink this effort.
