More of Lateef's performances at Pep's from the end of June 1964 were issued on Club Date (ABC-Impulse! ASD 9310) in 1976 and later as an expanded 2-LP set titled The Live Session (IA-9353/2). The recordings were repackaged again for CD as two volumes in 1993 and 1999 under the original title of Live at Pep's.
Ron Wynn, an Allmusic jazz writer, said in his review of the Live at Pep's:
"This mid-'60s concert was one of Lateef's finest, as it perfectly displayed his multiple influences and interests."
"Lateef played meaty tenor sax solos and entrancing flute and bamboo flute offerings, and also had impressive stints on oboe, shenai, and argol. This was a pivotal date in his career, and those unaware of it will get a treat with this disc."
