AllMusic Review by

A companion set to Bear Family's 1989 CD of Preston's other collection of Mercury sides, this replicates several of those sides, heard here in stereo for the first time. There's also a number of sides that were previously unissued until now, including an early cover of "The Twist," "Leave My Kitten Alone," and "Feel So Good," as well as solid ballad work on tunes like "Dream" and "Danny Boy." Even with his biggest hit, "Running Bear," MIA on this set, this is still a solid collection that showcases his talent quite well in a variety of settings. A real sleeper.
