"Sure, Furry Lewis is a contender to his throne, but Frank Stokes is the king of the Memphis Blues. On this album, "You Shall" and "It's A Good Thing" are my favorite tracks. Dan Sane's guitar playing works very well with Frank Stokes' playing and gorgeous singing. The man had one of the best voices in all of Blues. B.B. King, Freddie King, Son House, Johnny Shines, Bessie Smith, Frank Stokes, and Richard "Rabbit" Brown are probably the greatest singers that the genre ever had. The sound quality on this disc is poor compared to Stokes' Victor recordings, but it really doesn't matter much, as the music is so much fun."
