Three absolutely perfect songs and some other good stuff

"if this entire album kept up the raucous, brassy, wonderful, pure, ingenuous rock'n'roll sound of the first three songs, i would have no hesitation in recommending it as the best thing ever to ever come out of sun studios - yes, even better than the king's own sun recordings, which, as things stand, are still the best. 'we wanna boogie', 'red-headed woman', and 'prisoner's song'. look for them. it's probably not worth buying the whole forty dollar box-set like i did, because when those three songs are over, and the trumpet (that trumpet! brilliant!) disappears, the album goes seriously downhill. the other songs are good still, but they just aren't the same ecstatic, frenzied, honest, all-out rock'n'roll that you hear in those first three little miracles."
I Wish I Could Rate This Higher

"The throbbing muscle of the guitar and drums, the joyful been there done that bragging vocals, then the BRAP BRAP of the trumpet makes this some fine rockin music indeed. This is R&B heaped up with Hillbilly Boogie at it's finest. Think Louis JOrdan going on a bender with the Delmore Brothers."
