Source Rating
Allmusic 3/5 stars[1]

Allmusic awarded the album three stars and reviewer Scott Yanow said that "this obscure set by Louis Armstrong has its strange appeal. Satch gets off a few good trumpet solos and is quite cheerful throughout, even joking during "The Prisoner's Song" when the word "angel" finally shows up...Although more commercial than Armstrong's usual recordings of the era, this set is more memorable than one would expect and is worth searching for." [1]
