The Penguin Guide to Blues Recordings3/4 stars[3]

In a review for AllMusic, William Ruhlmann gave the album three and a half out of five stars. He notes that Winter only wrote one of the songs and added:

All the songs are basically vehicles for his guitar playing, sometimes performed in unison with [second guitarist Floyd] Radford. Winter plays fast, filling up measures with torrents of notes that must impress any guitar fan, and he earns the big cheers heard in between numbers. It's no surprise that his biggest seller is a live album [Live Johnny Winter And (1971)], and this one is another accomplished effort.[1]
