In his review for Allmusicmusic critic Richie Unterberger wrote "The support crew is a bit tentative; it's evident that they hadn't played much with Hardin, and in places the tempo comes close to breaking down. It's still a good, effective performance; Hardin is in good voice a condition which apparently couldn't be readily counted on, even in his early Tim Hardin - Live In Concert and on the songs that had already been released on his first two albums, the arrangements vary from the recorded versions in interesting fashions.
However, according to vibraphonist Mike Mainierithe musicians had played with Hardin extensively:. In fact, BernhardtDonald and I moved up to Woodstock to be next to the talented poet and singer-songwriter and rehearsed with him constantly. I personally had played with Tim on and off for about two years. The problem we encountered at the Town Hall performance, and in many of Tim's concerts, was that Tim was completely strung out which made his performances so inconsistent.
In musical terms, one never knew if Tim was going to add one bar or two to a phrase or skip a beat, or completely miss a verse or a chorus.
On this particular night at Town Hall, Tim was in terrible shape and what seemed like hesitancy on the part of us 'jazz' musicians was the result of us having to guess when he would strike the next chord or suddenly move to another section of the song.
We played his music hundreds of times over the years and knew the music intimately. From Wikipedia, the Tim Hardin - Live In Concert encyclopedia. Tim Hardin. Retrieved June 22, Rolling Stone.
