AllMusic Review by

Thompson's first album is an entertaining combination of fast-paced novelty tunes ("Rub-a-Dub-Dub"), slow romantic ballads ("Yesterday's Girl"), covers of numbers by Jimmie Rodgers ("Mother, The Queen of My Heart") and Bob Nolan ("At the Rainbow's End"), and surprisingly brisk adaptations of traditional material ("John Henry," with a killer solo by Billy Raymond Carson). A very solid 10-inch long-player.
