AllMusic Review by

This brings together all the recordings the Fendermen made for the Soma label, including their lone album and assorted non-album sides. It's a oddball blend of rockabilly, country, and guitar driven rock & roll, with a marvelous DIY spirit infusing it all. This also includes later recordings by the offshoot group the Muleskinners and newer recordings by guitarist Jim Sundquist which are overall much less effective, but don't hurt the package too much. This album also exists as an audiophile vinyl pressing on the Beat Rocket label sans the later recordings, making for a much tighter listening package.
