AllMusic Review by

It's the final indignity of Noel Redding's life that even the posthumous cash-in records bearing his name have no interest in Redding's career after his brief stint in the Jimi Hendrix Experience. There are no Fat Mattress songs on Live from Bunk R - Prague, just a handful of heavy-rock covers -- John Lennon's "Cold Turkey," Mountain's "Silver Paper," and those perennials "Hey Joe" and "Wild Thing" -- along with half a dozen of the most familiar Hendrix tunes. Redding's semi-heavy friends include former Patti Smith guitarist Ivan Kral and ex-Scandal drummer Frankie la Rocka, and together, they turn in entirely competent but thoroughly bloodless knockoffs of Redding's former employer's style. It's frankly all kind of embarrassing, and recommended only to vampires.
