AllMusic Review by

This is the only collection of Johnny Duncan's material, and it is expensive, costing over $100 for four compact discs. Duncan did authentic American versions of country, calypso, bluegrass, and blues numbers, which were mainly of interest in England at a time when American stuff sold well in England. That would seem to make this collection irrelevant today, except that he was a good singer -- even if he wasn't the Southerner he claimed to be -- and he had a good band behind him, especially guitar legend Denny Wright, who had also played with Lonnie Donegan. The stuff is lively and suprisingly effective, and any British pop/rock completist will probably want to own this four-CD set, which contains every known recording by Johnny Duncan.
