Reviewing Live In '71 for AllMusic, Richie Unterberger wrote: "As a document of an exciting rock 'n' soul revue, it's pretty good, well-shot, and in restored color. The chief pleasure might be more visual than musical (although the soundtrack is in good shape as well), as Tina Turner and the three backing Ikettes go through their choreographed paces with earthy sensuality."[1]

Steve LaBate wrote for Paste magazine: "The Revue rocks full throttle—from the band’s soulful instrumental take on Buddy Miles' "Them Changes" and the Ikettes' spunky, short-skirted entrance to Tina’s gritty, revved-up soul belting. Today's TRL pop icons take heed: this video is undeniable proof you can dance your ass off without having to lip sync."[2]
