'Little Brother was one of the finest of the first generation of blues pianists who came out of the barrelhouse and back rooms of the rural South in the early 1900s. This fine collection is mostly unissued cuts recorded from the late 60s to the early 80s. Excellent for collectors, and great old piano stylings as well.' -Pittsburgh Press 'When Little Brother Montgomery died in 1985, a priceless quality departed American piano music: an easy-rocking swing, a graceful flow of movement seldom heard outside of New Orleans players... His boogie bass lines are flexible, and his playing is relaxed and fluid... he embellishes as often as he improvises in his solos... he is a dramatic player, as in his No Special Rider Boogie. His blues singing is special.' -Chicago Tribune.
