"This pretty much forgotten effort by Lulu is a beauty. Though there is no single gem like "Oh Me Oh My (I'm a Fool for You Baby" from her New Routes album or "I Could Never Miss You More Than I Do" from her self-titled Lulu album on Alpha Records (this album on Chelsea/RCA is also self-titled) these tracks show the former Mrs. Maurice Gibb at the top of her game. "A Boy Like You," a cover of the Rascals tune with gender change, is over the top. The production by Wes Farrell is just magnificent. Hal Blaine's drums are bigger than usual, and everyone sounds like they are having a great time reinventing this Felix Cavaliere classic. "Groovin'" also gets the treatment, but it is, of course, more subtle. Lulu's voice is an engima in pop music. It is distinctive, and actually deserves to be put in the same category with Ronnie Spector, Dusty Springfield, Tina Turner, Bonnie Bramlett, and other icons. The Chelsea Records Lulu album is evidence this woman deserves a nice television special to focus on her career and put things in perspective. Her performance on songs by Willie Nelson, Dan Penn, Austin Roberts, and others here is first class." - AMG.
