AllMusic Review by

All the earliest Maxwell Street acetate recordings from the short-lived Ora Nelle label, featuring the earliest sides of Little Walter, Jimmy Rogers, Johnny Young and Othum Brown. Delta bluesman Johnny Temple's "Olds 98 Blues," done Robert Johnson style with an electric guitar, is a particular standout.
