AllMusic Review by

A 20-track collection of early Sammy Price sides, both as a leader and as a sideman. Kicking off with a duo with drummer Big Sid Catlett, the set moves on to solo sides from 1945, trio sides from 1948, small group dates with his Texas Bluesicians, and finishing up with backup work behind Mezz Mezzrow and Sidney Bechet, Big Joe turner, Cousin Joe, Sister Rosetta Tharpe, and Marie Knight. If you love boogie-woogie piano played with a real flair, you came to the right place.
