This is a righteous 21-track collection culled from the Rhino triple-disc set issued in the 1990s. Certainly all the well-known singles are here, such as "Shake, Rattle and Roll" and "Corrina, Corrina," Leiber & Stoller
's "The Chicken and the Hawk," and Turner
's own "Oke-She-Moke-She-Pop," "Flip, Flop, and Fly," and "Honey Hush." But this set goes further and deeper than most standard hits comps in that there are tracks like Doc Pomus
' stellar ballad "Don't You Cry," and Jesse Stone
's "Lipstick, Powder and Paint." For the newcomer to Big Joe Turner
, this is certainly all killer, no filler; for the hardcore fan, you already have it all but it makes for an excellent mixtape of some of the giant one's best.
