|The Penguin Guide to Blues Recordings|||
AllMusic reviewer Stewart Mason called it "a well-lubricated studio jam session". The Penguin Guide to Blues Recordings awarded the album 3 stars, noting: "The atmosphere is charged with the electricity of several wiley old blues musicians topping each other's tricks. their occasionally, and perhaps not always entirely playfully, barbed sides add a whiff of brimstone. Altogether the performance tells us things about the four men that their other records don't generally convey, and anyone with a special fondness for any of the artists really aught to hear it".
