The Sajid LP liner notes were written by 16 Magazine Editor, Gloria Stavers, who praised Sajid's elegance and style. Ms. Stavers also described how Sajid's singles:
"...drew more mail and more attention at 16 than any other recordings in the fifteen year history of the magazine."
To promote the LP, Sajid did a number of concerts, primarily in California. Sajid also taped his own Metromedia music special.
