AllMusic Review by

A wonderful blues and R&B vocalist during the '50s, Little Willie John had the kind of unforgettable, striking voice and charismatic personality that made each song he did immediately distinctive and often magnificent. A greatest hits package doesn't do him justice, since many of his finest songs were interpretative numbers on King albums, but anything that puts any of his music into circulation is worth it, even a sampler like this that's strictly basic and pro forma, and also doesn't really sound that great.
