AllMusic Review by

For a glimpse into Nighthawk's earliest sides for the Victor label, this is the place to go. The sound -- all of it taken off old 78s with little regard for modern noise reduction -- is less than stellar, but the performances are nothing but. This includes the tune that gave his permanent non de plume, "Prowling Night Hawk."
