"Severin's second album on the Motown label features a contingent of heavy studio musicians. Motown spared no expense in securing Russ Kunkel and Jeff Porcaro to play drums, David Hungate on bass, David Paich on piano and accordian, Richard Bennet on guitar and pedel steel, Alan Lindgren on electric piano, synthesizer and mellotron, Joe Porcaro and Bobby Torres on percussion, Steve Leeds on sax, Robert Grinnedge on steel drum and Dean Webb on mandolin. Background vocalists for the album include Jennifer Warren, Carol Carmichael, Bobbi Thomas, and Jules Shear. The album made Billboard magazine's Recommended LPs list. Billboard referred to the album as a "pleasant and soft LP from singer/songwriter who is divided between the John Denver laid back approach and a slightly more bouncy sound. The album contains a good variety of cuts and is much more impressive than last LP. Best Cuts: 'Love Notes From Denver,' 'Love Song,' and 'Cooking School'." In spite of all this, I think the album comes far short of Severin's debut album due to a much weaker group of songs. I'm guessing Motown rushed Severin way too much; his next album didn't come out for another 20 years!"
