AllMusic Review by

Captured at Chicago's intimate B.L.U.E.S. nightclub, this is surely one of the best live sets the quartet ever committed to tape. The vinyl time constraints limited the program to eight songs, but apart from a marathon "Mother Fuyer," and they're not his usual standards -- Chuck Willis's grinding "Keep a Drivin'," a resigned "Poor Man But a Good Man," and Slim's own "Help Yourself."
