AllMusic 2/5 stars[1]

Goodies is the sixth album by jazz guitarist George Benson recorded in 1968 and released on the Verve label.[2]


AllMusic awarded the album 2 stars stating "Verve needed one more album from Benson after he signed with A&M/CTI, and ended up with a strange grab-bag in which Benson plays superbly throughout, whatever the odd goulash of sounds in back of him".[1]
