This may be a fairly solid overview of Musselwhite's career (from the late '60s to the present -- with some previously unreleased tracks, including the title cut), but it is not the best introduction to the artist. For that, his Vanguard '60s output is still recommended, along with the 1984 session on Blue Rock'it and Alligator's In My Time. Fine stuff, though. ~ Dan Forte
