AllMusic Review by

Carl Carlton was the singer's sole gold LP and included his sole gold single, "She's a Bad Mama Jama." Produced by Leon Heywood, it includes the steppers favorite "Your Love's Rated X-Tra," " Don't You Wanna Make Love" (which sounds like Rick James' "You & I"), and the ballad "I Think It's Gonna Be Alright." The album highlights Carlton's vocal growth. ["She's a Bad Mama Jama" can be found on Pure Funk, Vol. 2, Old School, Vol.3, The Number Ones: Soul on Fire, Funk Classics: The 80's, and Strip Jointz, Vol. 2: More Hot Songs for Sexy Dancers, among others.]
