AllMusic Review by

The Louisiana-born singer Bobby Rush performs his bluesy R&B over a 1980s-sounding background of keyboards and electronic drums on this retrospective of some of his best-known recordings. On raw roadhouse classics like "I Ain't Studdin' You," "Gotta Have Money," and "What's Good For the Goose," Rush shows why his contemporary sound has made him a perennial underground R&B favorite in the decades since his recording career began in the '60s.
