From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

3 stars A terrific document of the incarnation that got this crew up and running, with the addition of Michael McDonald's smooth croon and gutbucket piano and Jeff Porcaro on an additional kit. Sound is mehhh but the excitement generated easily envelops the listener. Since live Dan is poorly documented, one wishes there were more songs, but "Boston Rag" "Do It Again" and "Rikki Don't Lose That Number" lend themselves well to the live treatment. The last three songs are the highlight for me, with "Mobile Home" being a weird curiosity in the Dan catalog. Going back to the "You Gotta Walk it Like You Talk It" era, sometimes the band extended this 14+ minutes.

Good for the Steely Dan fan, I'd say poor for your average progressive rock fan, I'll go with a middle rating for this site's purposes.
