AllMusic Review by

Another collection of retro and original rockabilly from Ronny Weiser's vault of his Rollin' Rock label from the 1970s. The highlights on this volume include tracks recorded in the 1950s by Groovey Joe Poovey ("Move Around"), Bob Luman ("That's All Right"), Whitey Pullens ("Walk My Baby Back Home"), Diana Wisdom ("Bop Cat Baby" and "Everybody's Gone But Me"), Jimmy Patton ("Let Me Slide"), Bob Edwards ("Blue Blue Baby" and "What'll I Do") and Alvis Wayne ("Lay Your Head On My Shoulder"). Equally fine are the inclusion of retro '70s recordings by Merle Travis and Ray Campi ("Lost John Boogie" and "Merle's Boogie Woogie"), Johnny Carroll, Mac Curtis and Jackie Lee Cochran, showing the connecting thread that kept the music alive through fads and fashion.
