AllMusic Review by

Red Robin R&B Story collects 36 tracks from the influential rhythm & blues label associated with the iconic Apollo Theatre. The two-disc set includes performances by Champion Jack Dupree, Red Prysock, Brownie McGhee, Sonny Terry, and vocal groups the Du Droppers, the Topps, and the Serenaders. This is a well-chosen primer collection for the novice and a great-sounding disc for R&B fanatics.
