AllMusic Review by

Clarence Carter's product has generally declined since he began recording for small Southern labels. Waning popularity caused the majors to lose interest in Carter and many other '60s and '70s recording artists. This ten-song collection lacks an emotional commitment from any of its participants. "I Wouldn't Do That" is a waltz, for crying out loud! Carter usually gets across best by singing bawdy, humorous tales, but "G Spot" and "Hot Dog" never quite generate enough heat. Carter wears too many hats -- producer, arranger, writer, and performer -- and none fit properly here.
