Reception

The album was largely panned by critics when it was originally released. However, today the albums reputation has improved, with Allmusic reviewer Dave Thompson saying that "A positively lascivious romp through Mungo Jerry's similarly lecherous "Lady Jump" offers a genuinely lampshade-swinging assault on the year's most glorious number one, while a dreamily echo-drenched take on "My Sweet Lord" not only features some sublime guitar work, but also an opening line apparently dedicated to "my sweet Claude".Fact|date=July 2008
