This is one of Maxwell's best. Oddly, the insectoid original "Tarantula" even sounds a bit like the 1970s group Queen. "Runnin' Wild" and "Just Foolin' Around" also are standouts in consistently great record. Along with four originals, other red hot harp numbers for Maxwell fans are first versions of "One O'Clock Jump" (later on Peg O' My Heart) and "Sing, Sing, Sing" (later on Anytime!).
