AllMusic Review by

Two 1962 Vee-Jay sessions that feature the Professor working with such stalwarts of the Bradford recording groups as Willie James McPhatter (also a great organist), Calvin White, and Madeline Bell, who is actually the focus of many tracks. Check "They Came Out Shouting" and "Daniel Is a Prayin' Man" and you'll hear what the Rolling Stones were seeking when they added Bell to "Gimme Shelter." Bradford's own vocals are not his best but the overall quality of songs is very high. Liner notes mainly trace Bradford history.
