Allmusic.com gave Live Cream Volume II a 3 1/2 star review:
Live Cream, Vol. 2 is a more ambitious album that its predecessor, offering more songs and including concert versions of two of the group’s AM radio hits (as opposed to the album tracks that comprised the repertory on Live Cream, Vol. 1). And it is just about essential listening for anyone who wants to understand what Cream was about, which was live performance. Utilizing — for the time — state-of-the-art mobile recording equipment, it was a significant achievement at the time in capturing the genuine sound of a high-wattage power trio on-stage, playing away at full volume, and the overall sonic excellence here must surely be credited to engineers Tom Dowd and Bill Halverson. The feeling that you are in the front row is very much in evidence, and this is largely due to their ability to capture the band’s live fury with clarity and intimacy, down to every nuance of Ginger Baker’s playing. … And coupled with the compact, four- to five-minute versions of “Deserted Cities of the Heart” and “Tales of Brave Ulysses,” among others, the album is a vital, intense, and enjoyable listen that is ultimately rewarding.
