The liner notes give only a few sketchy career details and little about the actual tracks on this 26-track compilation, which is probably unauthorized. But it can be safely assumed that it covers roughly the mid-'50s to the mid-'60s, as it reaches way back to some sides he did as a member of the Rainbows, and all the way up to "See Saw" and "Mercy, Mercy." Only a half-dozen or so of the tracks are on Razor & Tie's Mercy Mercy collection, so this goes a lot further into the roots of one of soul music's most interesting journeymen. It's erratic but fun, and in a way serves as a mini-primer on African-American rock through the mid-'60s, including doo wop; obvious Little Richard imitations, some very rawly performed and recorded early-'60s dance tunes along the lines of Hank Ballard, like "Pony Time" and "The Fat Man"; a Ben E.

Unfortunately, this doesn't have some good mid-'60s tracks like "Please Do Something" and "Sookie Sookie" (though those are on Mercy Mercy). Strange and very debatable assertion from the liner notes: "The very best song that the Jimi Hendrix Experience ever played was "'Mercy Mercy.'"
