AllMusic Review by

This is not a straight reissue of Sonny Rollins' classic 1956 session; in fact, only the title track (in tandem with John Coltrane,) "My Reverie," and "The Most Beautiful Girl in the World" are present from the original. "When Your Lover Has Gone" and "Paul's Pal" are missing, replaced by selections from other sessions. There's more music here and it's all very good, but you'd be better off to get the original rather than this.
