The concert was issued on DVD via Sony/Epic.[1][2] It was produced by Allen Kelman and directed by Mike Chloe.[3] Tim DiGravina of AllMusic rated the album at four-and-a-half-out-of-five stars and explained, "[he] throws every last ounce of passion into the session. Switching back and forth between ballads and rock flare-ups, Finn's crystal clear vocals and acoustic and electric guitars paint him as a perfect example of a first-rate singer/songwriter."[1]
