AllMusic Review by

Seven tracks by Ty Hunter, five by Nathaniel Allen, three by Jackie Beavers, and one by Fugi (the classic "I'd Rather Go Blind," also done by Etta James) make this a welcome addition for the serious collector. Beavers, who sung with Johnny Bristol as Johnny & Jackie for Tri-Phi and Anna Records, captivates on his biggest solo single, "Sling Shot," and two others. Allen displays his gritty street-tough soul most notably on "I Was Telling Her About You" and "If You Want to Hold On, Stop Holding On to Me." Hunter's classic, mellow falsetto tantalizes on "Lonely Baby," recorded by Ty Hunter & the Voice Masters, and solo shots like "Darling, Darling, Darling" and "Something Like a Storm."
