Writing for Allmusic, critic Stephen Thomas Erlewine wrote the album "Live in Concert captures much of the energy of their live performances, with Joe Walsh's guitar solos catching fire on nearly every song. However, the record also makes it clear that he was beginning to outgrow the confines of the James Gang..."[2]
