AllMusic reviewer Bill Dahl stated: "Produced by Ralph Bass in 1966 but not issued by Chess at the time, More Real Folk Blues was unearthed by MCA only a few years back. It's no masterpiece, but certainly deserved release in its day – backed by Burns and a Chicago rhythm section that copes as well as can be expected with Hooker's singular sense of timing".[2]
