AllMusic Review by

Single-disc collections by the Proper label are some of the best value-for-money propositions ever burned onto disc, their contents usually including 25 to 30 crucial songs for less than ten dollars. The label's introduction to the Maddox Brothers & Rose, country music's most rambunctious group (on record and in concert) is no different, including all of their most famous performances -- revved-up versions of "Step It Up & Go" and "Mule Skinner Blues" (the latter of which Dolly Parton copied for her version), as well as boisterous songs like "Sally Let Your Bangs Hang Down" and "No Help Wanted." At 30 songs, it's positively packed with great material by the Maddox Brothers & Rose, and although the group never progressed in the modern sense of the word (making a 15-song compilation nearly as effective as a 30-song compilation), this introduction is as valuable as any listeners will find.
