AllMusic Review by

This 16-track collection rounds up the usual favorites (Slim Harpo's "I'm a King Bee," Arthur Gunter's "Baby Let's Play House," Lazy Lester's "Sugar Coated Love," Lightnin' Slim's "Rooster Blues") along with others less often anthologized like Jerry McCain's "My Next Door Neighbor" and "That's What They Want," Leroy Washington's "Wild Cherry," Jimmy Anderson's "Naggin'," Whispering Smith's "I Tried So Hard" and the alternate take of Lazy Lester's "I'm a Lover, Not a Fighter." A solid mid-line collection that makes a perfect introduction into the blues side of this legendary label.
