AllMusic Review by

Robert Hunter's first U.S. release in seven years was this "retrospective collection," gathering five tracks from the 1974 Tales Of The Great Rum Runners album, one from the 1975 Tiger Rose album, three from the unreleased Alligator Moon album, two from the U.K.-only 1980 album Jack O' Roses, and the newly recorded "Touch Of Darkness." Most interesting was the Alligator Moon material, which found Hunter fronting the band Comfort, which played tight rock 'n' roll and provided a more organized musical format for Hunter's work than he had been able to achieve on his albums so far.
