Музыкальный сайт AllMusic пишет, что если попытаться «составить короткий список исполнителей, оказавших самое важное влияние на становление рок-н-ролла», «имя Роя Брауна будет недалеко от самой вершины [списка]». Сайт называет его «инноватором», «звездой ритм-н-блюза, чьи буйные творения непосредственно предвосхитили восход рока». Рой Браун был включен в Зал славы блюза в 1981 году.
