AllMusic Review by

A powerful collection of singles from about 1962-1967, this is an interesting record because it illustrates some of the stylistic changes in King's music (and "urban blues" in general) during this period -- the transition from upright bass to the heavier-sounding electric, the horn arrangements become less jazzy and more "punchy" and soul-influenced, and his guitar style itself becomes more economical.
