AllMusic Review by AllMusic

One of Walker’s best live albums, this documents his mid-1990s back to basics period, a time when he was performing with the classic rock band lineup of two guitars, bass, and drums. The stripped down sound works extremely well here as Walker runs through a nicely chosen selection of his signature songs, “Mr. Bojangles” and “Got Lucky Last Night.” As he’s always been fond of championing other writers, there’s a handful of cover tunes (Guy Clark’s “L.A. Freeway,” “Gary Nunn’s “London Homesick Blues,” and of course, the ultimate gonzo singalong, Ray Wylie Hubbard’s “Up Against the Wall Redneck Mother”) as well.
