AllMusic Review by

Originally, albums were nothing more than collections of 78-rpm singles, and Lefty cut eight sides for this Columbia-issued Jimmie Rodgers tribute album, one of the first of its kind. Those eight sides, plus four bonus sides, make up this reissue, which sports the original 10" LP's cover art and back cover. Though Lefty was in top form back in 1951, the later tracks from 1953 are no less terrific. Another chunk of the man's greatness.
