AllMusic Review by

A case where if the vocals don't send you, you'll still like the songs, live versions of popular soul hits like "I Do Love You," "Land of 1,000 Dances," "Beg Me," and "Stubborn Kinda Fellow." Nothing really stands out -- no raves, and the best track is a haunting version of the Miracles' "Ooh Baby Baby." But this CD ends before you know it or have a chance to hate it; the longest song of the 12-pack is 3:06, the shortest 1:55, with most being around the 2:20 mark. A live album that live-album haters will like because they stick to the songs' melody with little variation from what you're used to hearing, except for the inferior singing.
