AllMusic Review by

This release combines two separate albums, Sleepy John Estes' First Recordings With Yank Rachel and Noah Lewis, and Gus Cannon & His Jug Stompers' The Legendary 1928-1930 Recordings, in one package as a double-disc set. While the two main artists here may have some stylistic points in common, there really is no compelling reason to stick them together this way, especially when more complete collections are available separately for both Estes and Cannon.
