Allmusic3/5 stars [1]

Allmusic critic Bruce Eder wrote of the live album "This may be the latter-day Kingston Trio, but two of the original members — Bob Shane and Nick Reynolds — are here, along with 20-year veteran George Grove, and they do sound very good... The singing, all un-retouched, is superb, and the playing is spot-on — the trio has aged well, they've retained a sense of humor about themselves and what they do, and a good deal od spontaneity, despite the 40 years of history behind them at the point from which this show dates."[1]

Reissues[edit]

There are multiple releases of this album using the same title and also under different titles with different track listings. Release dates are given as November 1994 for the Silverwolf issue and January 1994 for Xeres Records. The difference between these two are the track times and the Kris Kristofferson song "Gypsy Rose and I Don't Give a Curse" is titled as "Seven Starving Sailors" (the first lines of the song).[2] Silverwolf also reissued it on CD in 2006 combined with Dave Guard's solo album Up and In.[3] Some of the tracks were also included on the Silverwolf releases The Extreme Kingston Trio (2001) and The Best of the Kingston Trio.
