AllMusic Review by

As with his previous album Spanish Grease, the toughest and most memorable track is the one Bobo original, "Fried Neck Bones and Some Home Fries." Its creeping Latin soul groove was, like "Spanish Grease," an obvious inspiration for Carlos Santana. But on most of the rest of the recording, Bobo coasts through interpretations of period hits like "Michelle," "Goin' Out Of My Head," and Jay & The Americans' (!) "Come A Little Bit Closer," with some jazz and pop standards as well. Uno Dos Tres has been combined with the 1965 LP Spanish Grease on one CD reissue.
