AllMusic Review by Ron Wynn

Long before he became the darling of the first rock and roll generation, Big Joe Turner was singing surging, swinging jazz and boogie tunes. That was the menu on this date, and Jimmy Rushing had nothing on Turner when it came to stretching out notes, hollering, cavorting and shouting.
