Rolling Stone said “All in all, it’s a rainy night sounding, laid-back album with the emphasis on good solid blues”[6] AllMusic reviewer Bruce Eder stated “Muddy Waters Live (At Mr. Kelly’s) shows precisely how fortuitous Muddy Waters’ history with Chess Records was. … This album, recorded during two June 1971 gigs at one of Chicago’s top clubs, was the third full-length concert release of his career … The core of the band that would work with him for the rest of the ’70s was already with him, and the man himself was in excellent form — in voice and on slide guitar … the effect of hearing a master of the blues virtuoso band in action is overpowering”.[4]
