On AllMusic, Fred Thomas said, "Some seasoned Deadheads consider the 1990 spring tour to be one of the best of the band's legendary live history, citing consistently strong shows and a renewed sense of fire. Certainly by this point, their musicianship was second nature, and set lists on this tour were more inspired and fluid than on weaker tours. The song selection on So Glad You Made It emphasizes how tuned-in the sets were, with a wide cross section of crowd favorites like "Playing in the Band", later-period compositions like "West L.A. Fadeaway", and deep jams on songs like "Eyes of the World" and "Bird Song". Beginning with a playful take on Sam Cooke's "Let the Good Times Roll", the scene is set for impassioned performances and full-hearted playing from the band."[5]
