AllMusic Review by

This 18-song blues compilation is a tasty sampling from the solid roster of the New Orleans-based Black Top label. It features songs by seasoned musicians like Earl King and Snooks Eaglin, as well as younger players like Bobby Radcliff and Anson Funderburgh. Highlights include Ronnie Earl And The Broadcasters' "Blind Love," Robert Ward's "Your Love Is Amazing," and Carol Fran and Clarence Holliman's feisty "Golden Girl." If you like blues rhythms, vocals, guitars, horns, harmonicas, and keyboards, you'll find plenty to enjoy here.
