AllMusic Review by

From the beginning of the opening cut, "Think," and throughout the entire show on this live CD, blues guitarist and singer Bryan Lee puts on an explosive performance full of fire and passion. Lee talks enthusiastically to the audience, giving them the background to many of the songs before shouting out his vocals, but his intense guitar flights are the most impressive feature of the album. Lee welcomes his young friends and fellow guitarists Kenny Wayne Shepherd and Frank Marino as guests on a few numbers. If anything, their participation makes the music even more fiery. With the assistance of a fine backing group that includes both organist Mark Adams and John Banks on keyboards, this CD certainly does not lack in spirit, power, or intensity.
