AllMusic Review by

For those who want a cheaper and more concise collection of her best Atlantic cuts than the two-CD Miss Rhythm, this superb 23-track CD has the cream of her '50s work, including no less than 19 Top Ten R&B singles. Charting her evolution from her jazzy debut, "So Long," through jump blues and early rock & roll, it also adds a bonus of two previously unissued live cuts from 1959.
