Wilson & Alroy’s Record Reviews
This is so much better than the live record it’s hard to believe it’s really the same people. Clapton’s at his songwriting peak, which makes this a good deal despite various production annoyances. […]

Robert Christgau
as a solo artist he can’t simulate Delaney’s optimism. I mean, a party song called “Blues Power” from a man with a hellhound on his trail? […]

allmusic
That is both a good and a bad thing — it’s encouraging to hear him grow and become a more fully rounded musician, but too often the album needs the spark that some long guitar solos would have given it. […]
