“When Hammond master Lonnie Smith recorded this set for Blue Note in 1968, he was better known as a supporting sideman on performances and recordings by (among others) George Benson and especially Lou Donaldson; some of Sweet Lou's best recordings, including Alligator Boogaloo, Midnight Creeper, and Everything I Play is Funky, feature Smith's supple Hammond grooves.

Other musicians must have found Smith's musicianship worthy of respect, for this session convenes a gathering that's the perfect snapshot of the classic late-1960s jazz-funk ensemble: Bennie Maupin (tenor sax), Julian Priester (trombone), and Lee Morgan (trumpet) in the front line, with guitarist Melvin Sparks and drummer Idris Muhammad smooth in the pocket.” – All About Jazz
