AllMusic 4.5/5 stars[3]

In a review for AllMusic, critic Cub Koda wrote: "This companion volume to the Real Folk Blues album was issued in 1967 and couldn't be more dissimilar in content to the first one if you had planned it that way. Whereas the previous volume highlighted middle-period Wolf, this one goes all the way back to his earliest Chess sessions, many of which sound like leftover Memphis side".[3]
