AllMusic Review by

Cleveland-born Bullmoose Jackson sings and blows tenor and is supported by members of the Lucky Millinder Orchestra, with whom he recorded for many years. This is a reproduction of the original album in all its typical brass disregard for the featured artist. The set includes the storming "Why Don't You Haul Off," and the joys and perils of "Sneaky Pete," the jumpin' "Cherokee Boogie," and the comic "Bow-Legged Woman." It's a collection of tunes cut between 1947 and 1951 for King. It contains many ballads from the Billy Eckstine school of smooch.
