Allmusic.com gave Headquarters a 4 1/2 star review:
With the help of producer Chip Douglas, the band spent some time learning how to be a band (as documented on the Headquarters Sessions box set) and set about recording what turned out to be a dynamic, exciting, and impressive album. … Headquarters doesn’t show the band to be musical geniuses, but it did prove they were legitimate musicians with enough brains, heart, and soul as anyone else claiming to be a real band in 1967. [Rhino’s 1995 reissue adds six previously unissued tracks recorded during the Headquarters sessions including an early take of the single “The Girl I Knew Somewhere” and rare demos “Nine Times Blue” and “Pillow Time.”]
