AllMusic Review by Stephen Thomas Erlewine

Rainbow Stew: Live at Anaheim boasts an augmented Strangers, with former Texas Playboys Eldon Shamblin, Tiny Moore, and Gordon Terry and a horn section filling out the band's sound. The result is a wonderful, swinging album that brings a new spin not only to classics like "I'm a Lonesome Fugitive" and "Sing Me Back Home" but also to Hag's newer songs "Misery and Gin," "I Think I'll Just Stay Here and Drink," and the title track.
