AllMusic Review by

Meshing R&B, country, gospel, and even calypso into a striking yet familiar blend, Wilbert Harrison is best known for his definitive version of Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller's "Kansas City" from 1959, but he had a lot more in the blender, as this two-disc, 40-track set shows, including all the singles, both A- and B-sides, that Harrison recorded for the Rockin', Savoy, and Fury Records imprints between 1953 and 1962.
