AllMusic Review by

The 18 songs on this unusual sampler all have something to with the Mississippi River. With such titles as "Steamboat Bill," "Mississippi Mud," "River Stay Away from My Door" and "Floating down to Cotton Town," the plot of the CD is obvious. Some of the material is rare while other cuts are fairly common. Highlights include The Boswell Sisters' "Roll on, Missisippi, Roll On," Paul Whiteman's "Selections from Showboat," Paul Robeson singing "Ol' Man River" and two titles from Wingy Manone.
