Background: Released in early 1968, Ooga-Boo-Ga-Loo was originally released in the United States as Lighthouse ’68. gave Ooga-Boo-Ga-Loo a 4 star review:

Lighthouse ’68 is the third date the Jazz Crusaders cut at the popular California venue. Previous outings recorded here, though very fine, carried the sonic weight of a band very aware of their audience and that they were making live records. Here, they get it completely right. Feel is what dictates the material and its execution on this set, without unnecessary attention paid to crowd or recording apparatus. This is one the most intimate jazz shows captured on tape during the 1960s…. In sum, this record delivers what most records only promise: it literally sings with great musicianship displayed with verve and acumen, along with a warm human feeling that amounts to joy.
