AllMusic Review by Cub Koda

A reissue of a reissue, here's the Charly version of a Columbia vintage compilation of Maybelle's best Okeh sides. It covers everything from sassy numbers like "Gabbin' Blues" and "One Monkey Don't Stop No Show" to ballads like "Ain't No Use" and "You'll Be Sorry" to the original version of the soon-to-be rock & roll classic "Whole Lot of Shakin' Going On." Superlative liner notes from Peter Guralnick put her story in perfect perspective and makes this one the collection to beat.
