February 27, 1961 Billboard: The alternately swinging and exotic sound of guitars, mandolins and accordion fill the stereo air of this new sound-type LP. Besides accordion and rhythm, four electric guitars, four Spanish guitars, and eight mandolins give a large and fulsome sound that's very effectively carried through the stereo speaker set-up. Tunes are varied to include the likes of "The Woodpecker Song," "Volare," "Torero," "Only Love Me," and "Arrivederci Roma."
