AllMusic Review by

An extremely classy mix of songs for what ultimately was an extremely flat film. Al Green's elegant blend of jazz, soul and funk is indicative of sweeping romantic tracks like "Love Is a Beautiful Thing." The album also contains playful moments like Stan Getz and Luiz Bonfa's "Sambolero," Perry Como's "Papa Loves Mambo," and Rick James' "Super Freak." The eclectic mix is charged with charged numbers like Richie Havens' "Follow" and Curtis Mayfield's "Move On Up." Despite the panoply of amazing tracks, Eddie Harris' "Listen Here" bottles some amazing studio work and steals the show.
