Allmusic.com gave Tall Tales! Legends and Nonsense a 4 1/2 star review:
By the time that the acoustic folk collective known as the New Christy Minstrels released their third long-player, Tall Tales! Legends and Nonsense (1963), the band had been together under the direction of Randy Sparks in several different configurations for less than a year. During that time, however, they had established themselves as a formidable aggregate of collective musicianship. Their multi-faceted talents were likewise prominently featured during the first season of the highly rated weekly network musical/variety Andy Williams Show. Their slightly offbeat brand of innocuous and infectious folky fun is at the heart of this release.
