AllMusic Review by

This is an enjoyable if slightly skimpy ten-song LP from the Challenge and 4 Star libraries, showcasing some of the more familiar artists to pass through the two labels' rosters of past decades. George Morgan's "Mr. Ting-A-Ling" starts matters off on a strong note, and it only gets better with the harmonizing of Johnny & Jonie on their rendition of "Tijuana Jail" (and, later, on "Wishing My Life Away"). Billy Don Burns' "Be Alright in Arkansas" is a more basic and even more upbeat number with some phenomenal acoustic guitar playing; and the Cate Sisters harmonize beautifully on "What's a Little Dirt". Jan Howard appears both solo and in a duet ("We'll Never Love Again") with Wynn Stewart.
