AllMusic
The Jerry Wexler/Tom Dowd/Arif Mardin production and engineering team picked mostly perfect songs, and those that weren't so great were salvaged by Springfield's marvelous delivery and technique.

Rolling Stone
A real drifting, cool, smart, sexually distracted soul album by a singer who got grease all over her hands with one song and primly wiped them off before heading into the next one.

Dusty Springfield had such a divine voice and prove to us with this record that she could rival the greats in soul music at those times. Her performance and song/writing was top-notch. Tracks such as ""son of a preacher man"" and ""just a little lovin'"" are still amazing. But the deeper cuts of this album still hold its parts. Her reinventing her career was possibly the best thing that could have happen.

Dusty is trying to reinvent her career, relocates in Memphis and records a fine collection of blue-eyed soul, probably the finest collection of blue-eyed soul!
