Poco got good very suddenly it seems. Some time between their first and second time they learned how to harmonize and began providing a very legitimate counterpart to CSN&Y, having less charisma than the LA charmers, but a more together flowing musical sound. This is a live album and it captures the group at their most bouncing moments.
- Danny Goldberg, Circus, 4/71.
Poco's 3rd album is its first "live" recording, taken from appearances at Boston's Music Hall and New York's Felt forum. "Pickin' Up The Pieces," an exciting finale/medley of "Just In Case It Happens," "Yes Indeed," "Grand Junction" and "Consequently So Long," and the most recent chart single, "You'd Better Think Twice," are well-received favorites, while "A Man Like Me," and "Hear That Music" are the best new material.
- Billboard, 1971.
The first of two live albums, and consisting of mostly new material -- a major country-rock success, capturing not only the lyricism and upbeat approach of the band, but also the infectiously positive attitude of its fans. * * *

Deliverin' is the live flipside of Poco's 1970 eponomously-named debut, and shows how powerful a live group it was, even at its start. * * * *
