AllMusic Review by

Middle Aged Blues is Saffire's debut tape and the vocal trio has already developed a distinctive style. Although some listeners might find their material a bit too jokey, it's clear that the group is having fun with their material. They have respect for blues traditions, particularly classic female blues, but they don't merely regurgitate the same songs in the same fashion -- Saffire makes them loose and fun, like you were eavesdropping on a party. Middle Aged Blues isn't as fully formed as their later albums for Alligator, but it still has plenty of good times.
