Allmusic 3.5/5 stars[2]

A review by Allmusic gave the album three and a half out of five stars, noting that "the recording is clean and full of detail... and the Experience sound quite good... but it doesn't cast much new light on his music or his performance style, making for a good but not a great live release".[2]
