Music critic Stephen Howell was critical of the poor recording and production in his review for Allmusic. Of the performance, he wrote the release "does showcase Breau's ability to make one guitar sound like two, due to his mix of classical, country, flamenco, and jazz roots that he incorporates into his fingerpicking style... If you're looking to purchase a live CD of Breau, however, it is recommended that you pick up The Velvet Touch of Lenny Breau, which has much better production."[1]
