In his Allmusic review, critic Lindsay Planer wrote "The stability of the lineup as well as a few Buckaroo instrumentals and vocal duets—featuring lead Buckaroo and longtime Owens collaborator Don Rich—contribute to the power of this oft-overlooked effort. The increasingly subtle yet significant impact of rock & roll can be heard throughout Roll Out the Red Carpet." [1]
