"I love this album and believe it is a worthy album if you are a Jimmy Jones fan. I am a diehard fan of this man and have been since I was a teen. Both he and his songs are very unique and original. I have a lot of the old Cub 45's and would give anything if someone would release all his work, including his VeeJay material such as Mr.FixIt and No Insurance, on CD. You have to find the original recordings of Good Timin' and Handyman on compilation discs (best are on Mercury), but the updated Good Timin' and Handyman on this disk are great fun. Keep up the good work Jimmy!"

"A depressed laid off factory worker there were many a night where I felt like ending it all. Depressed and inibrieated I turned to my vintage collection of do-wop and lemme tell you, Grandma's Rock & Roll Party raised my soul from the shallow depths of hell. HandyMan Jing Jing Jolly were among my favorites, but even the casual listener will know instantaneously that this is Jimmy's tighest LP, EVER!"

"This could be Jimmy Jones' finest collection of songs - EVER!!!Jimmy has done it again, folks! Jimmy combines a funky lyrical hooks with that voice that goes from being sweet & angelic to downright outrageous! He hits those high notes like never before, and gives us a unique (and almost experimental) delivery!The 90's version of Good Timin' has beats that will make even the most hardcore rapper want to pay attention to the original Handy Man himself!Highlights include the peppy "Jing Jing Jolly", "It's A Dirty Shame", and the almost anthem-like "I Need You Baby." Jimmy's band is in top form, backing Jimmy like nobody else could.DEFINITELY PICK UP THIS DISC!!!! GET HAPPY, GET SOME JIMMY!-Judy Gudy"
