The title track peaked at number one on the Billboard Hot Black Singles chart, and at number 21 on the Billboard Hot 100, while "You Don't Know Like I Know" peaked at number seven and number 90. An Allmusic review refers to Hold On, I'm Comin' as epitomizing "Memphis soul in all its unpretentious, down-home glory".
Sam & Dave are one of the best soul singers and this album is to back up this statement. Plus, it's got Booker T. and the MG's working as the backup band.
If you're into 60's soul, you can't go wrong with this album!
