AllMusic2.5/5 stars[3]

AllMusic reviewer Bill Dahl stated: "After a slew of albums aimed primarily at the folk-blues audience that resuscitated his flagging career during the early '60s, Lightnin' Hopkins attempted to regain his original fan base with these unpretentious 1965 sessions for Stan Lewis' Jewel logo. Pretty convincingly, too,".[3]
