AllMusic Review by

This Sept. 9, 1979 Long Island concert presents several sides of John Sebastian. Equally well-versed in blues, folk, and rock, he manages to straddle all three superbly without making a lasting impression in any. The bluesy "Mobile Line" is followed by a stripped-down, reconsidered version of "Welcome Back," and a quartet of Lovin' Spoonful standards, "Nashville Cats," "Daydream," "Younger Generation," and "Darling Be Home Soon," all interspersed with a new song or two. He's in excellent voice -- a little rougher than the late 1960s -- and runs through blues and folk riffs with equal aplomb.
