AllMusic Review by

Subtitled 'Texas Rock & Roll from the '50s and '60s, ' this is about as raw and unvarnished as the music gets. There are no big, or even recognizable, names aboard this compilation (unless you consider tenuous connections to Buddy Holly like Larry Welborn and Ben Hall big names), but the music certainly delivers the goods in a straightforward manner, always a plus on these type of collections. The more notable moments include Ben Hall's take on his "Blue Days-Black Nights" that Holly recorded as his first single and ""Be-Bop Ball," Larry Welborn's "Guitar Hop," Orville Fox and the Harmony Masters' "Honey, You Talk Too Much," Bobby Allison's "Bark Like a Dog" and the Regals' "Waitin' on the Steps at School."
