Writing for Allmusic, critic Mark Deming compared the songs in the stripped-down format of the EP with Louris' versions from the album Vagabonds writing; "These solo performances don't bring much that's new to these songs, but given how good Louris' songwriting was on Vagabonds, that's no insult; accompanied by a full band, they were compelling stuff, and Louris makes them work nearly as well with just his voice and a six-string."[1]
