"As usual, this is an excellent set of music. This album includes music from both Starday and King eras and is a good overall sampler of Moon's career.Although not as wellknown as Elvis Presley, there is no doubting the similarities between Moon and Elvis: both were very versatile singers, were regarded as the King of their chosen field, had countless imitators and derivatives and loved black music.This CD displays Moon Mullican's unique versatility: from oldtimey country like "Wabash cannonball" to a raunchy cover of Roy Brown's "Grandpa stole my baby" to ragtimey tracks like "Ragged but right" And "Magnolia rag" to originals like "Trifling woman blues", "Pipeliner blues" & "What have I done", Moon [to forgive the pun] shines throughout. No matter what the genre, he sings and plays with equal enthusiasm and ability and can effortlessly switch from one to the other at will."

"It had been years since I had heard these songs. Once you hear them you relive all the good times they brought. If you like old music and piano played to the fullest you will love this cd."

"Well, this disc is a pretty good collection of moon's material. If you are an audiophile you will be let down by the hiss and pops (obviously 45's that were recorded into a digital format) as well as volume changes throughout the disc. BUT, if you are a fan of moon you don't expect hifi recordings. This package has some of moon's hottest tracks (though I wouldn't go so far as to say that all 22 are great hits). Maybe I am biased as moon is my (get ready for this) great great great uncle."
