AllMusic Review by

Seven good songs from the Houston, TX, natives. On, "I Won't Leave You Honey," and a song obviously written for the O'Jays, Archie proves he's a quality soul belter. "I Could Dance All Night" written by Bunny Sigler, Ron Tyson, and Alan Felder, is a pleasant mid-tempo, lilting dance ditty, the melody will have you humming along. Tyson co-wrote the two aforementioned tunes; he later joined the Temptations as the fourth replacement for Eddie Kendricks. Ricky Owens briefly replaced Damon Harris, whom Glenn Leonard replaced. A good party record, "Let's Groove," and "The Soul City Walk" stand tall. The Drells were: Lee Bell (Archies' brother, ) James Wise, and Willie Pernell.
