AllMusic Review by

Golden Archives collects 40 tracks from the '50s era by four separate R&B artists: Ray Charles, Big Joe Turner, Clyde McPhatter, and Ruth Brown. Unlike similar budget compilations, this Rhino box set features the original versions of such classic oldies as "I Got a Woman," "Shake, Rattle and Roll," "Treasure of Love," and "Mama He Treats Your Daughter Mean."
