AllMusic Review by

This album originally dropped on Glades records following Thomas' million-selling "Why Can't We Live Together," which qualifies as the cheapest Top Ten hit ever made. The session consists of Timmy Thomas singing and accompanying himself on organ. The rest of the album is almost as sparse. If you like a lot of production, you won't find it here. Remakes of "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face" and the Chi-lites' "Coldest Days of My Life" won't make you ditch the original versions. And with the exception of the title track, the originals are forgettable.
