AllMusic Review by

This two disc set collects several of Mose Allison’s key tracks from the 1950s, with the first disc, which includes the pianist’s classic versions of “Parchman Farm” and “Young Man’s Blues,” functioning as a sort of “greatest hits” while the second disc features his debut LP Back Country Suite from 1957, which was issued by Prestige Records, along with his first record for Columbia Records, 1959’s The Transfiguration of Hiram Brown. It makes for a great introduction to a one-of-a-kind artist.
