AllMusic Review by

A relatively slick live set from the maverick Bo Diddley, Hey doesn't add anything significant to his legacy, but it certainly reaffirms it with sturdy renditions of "Roadrunner" and "Mona" and an over-ten-minute rendition of "I'm a Man." The introductory track opens with that patented shave-and-a-haircut rhythm that is known as "the Bo Diddley," and if he did nothing else, the man himself would still be a legend for championing that eternal bit of rhythmic DNA.
