AllMusic Review by

Midnight at the Barrelhouse contains 125 sides, nearly six hours spread out over five CDs, of vintage West Coast R&B. These remastered tracks from the '40s and '50s include several from Johnny Otis, Little Esther, Mel Lewis, and the Robins amongst numerous others. Since JSP is a quality budget label, this is a good set to start with if you have any interest in classic West Coast R&B but aren't sure where to start.
