AllMusic Review by

Recorded at Oberlin College in 1965, this catches Hurt at the point of his rediscovery, playing for an enraptured folkie crowd. There are no real surprises in the set list; the usual "hits" ("Candy Man," "Salty Dog," "Frankie and Albert," "Casey Jones") are all here, and Hurt's in typical form. Unfortunately, this is dubbed from rather noisy vinyl, spoiling some of the intimacy of the event and causing some nasty distortion in various spots. Good performance, though.
