AllMusic Review by

Tenor saxophonist Boots Randolph released numerous instrumental country-pop albums throughout the '60s and '70s. Randolph's choice of instrumentals were geared toward both the country and easy listening audiences. This Bear Family compilation focuses on Randolph's early recordings, featuring "Hey Elvis," "Blue Guitar," and "Estrellita," and his biggest chart-topper, "Yakety Sax." At 23 tracks, Yakety Sax is probably more than the casual Boots Randolph listener will need. If you're looking to buy only one Randolph disc, check out Greatest Hits on Monument.
