AllMusic Review by

Aside from many fans not being able to properly pronounce his name, J.B. Lenoir also suffered from being severely underrated. He was both a first-rate uptempo vocalist and outstanding interpreter and composer. This double-LP anthology has long since disappeared from general circulation, but should be ardently pursued, as it contains definitive Lenoir cuts from Chess, Parrot and Checker recorded in the '50s.
