Entertainment Reviews:

New York Times - 11/13/1985
"...Winning on the strength of its homespun charm....Colorful, lively and garrulous..."
Los Angeles Times - 04/02/1986
"...The documentary team shrewdly keeps a low profile, letting us enjoy Armstrong's rambles through Chicago's South Side and his trip back home to Tennessee..."
A.V. Club - 09/18/2010
"Armstrong emerges as an extraordinary man navigating a mundane world....He worked steadily in an era that crossed musical genres freely, then wound up largely forgotten once that era passed." -- Grade: A-
