AllMusic Review by

Recorded live at the Fillmore East circa 1970-71 (no recording date given), this is a marvelous document of the continuing spell that Bob Smith had over a generation of kids, no matter how old they became. As he puts the audience through its paces, his charming demeanor puts over these corny jokes and songs so effortlessly that you find yourself chuckling, even if the songs and jokes are but distant memories. Not as good as the old TV shows, but like most nostalgic moments, good for a one-time blast.
