Allmusic 4.5/5 stars [1]

Writing for Allmusic, music critic Mark Allen wrote of the album "The prodigious technique, deadpan sense of humor, and infamous singing are all evident less than a minute into the opening tune. Performing solo and playing more slide guitar than usual, Kottke wows a supportive hometown audience in Minneapolis with some of the finest playing of his career."[1]
