AllMusic Review by

Fronting a six-piece band called Zulu, Papa John Creach produces a set of R&B, jump blues, ballads, and rock. A horn section augments the proceedings, as Creach and Zulu take on an instrumental version of "Milk Train" co-written by Grace Slick and featured on the 1972 Jefferson Airplane album Long John Silver and the similarly soaring "String Jet Continues." But "I Miss You So" is an old pop ballad, "Golden Dreams" is an airy instrumental, and "Playing My Music" is Creach's autobiography-in-song. A varied collection.
