AllMusic Review by

A passable (taken from old, scratchy 78 transfers with little to no sound cleanup) collection of classic Fats with "Honeysuckle Rose," "You're Not the Only oyster in My Stew," and "I'm Gonna Sit Right Down and Write Myself a letter" to recommend it. No liner notes or recording information makes this not much of a package -- even as a budget set -- but the music's just fine. A good, cheap introduction to an American original.
