Allmusic.com gave California Nights a 4 star review:

When Lesley Gore recorded California Nights in 1967, it had only been two years since her last big hit — “Sunshine, Lollipops and Rainbows,” which made it to 13 in 1965 -– but it felt like even longer due to all the shifting trends of the late ’60s. Assisted by producers Bob Crewe (who helmed seven of the LP’s ten tracks) and Quincy Jones (who is responsible for the three other cuts, all arranged by Jack Nitzche), Gore dove right into the fashionable sounds of Los Angeles in 1967. It was hardly hippie and not quite psychedelic but those trippy sounds were certainly in the air and can be heard on California Nights via fuzz guitars, mind-bending echoes, and whirling strings, but all this is tempered by a good dose of go-go beats and middle of the road pop.
